Hi Eric,

To start things off, your English is much better than many people who
post to the newsgroups. :)

Anyway, I have been a quadriplegic for the past 2 years and have tried
a few therapies myself. You might want to look into biofeedback for
your mother, possibly even Function Electrical Stimulation. (FES)
These 2 therapies can be very beneficial, although they do not help
everyone.
