Plexus Nexus was born of a need for experts in brachial plexus injuries to share clinical and research ideas, and of the need for patients and families to obtain reliable information. What began as an idea in a Flamenco show in Barcelona has grown to a worldwide effort to improve education, advocacy, research, clinical standards, and cooperation so that no child has to live with a Brachial Plexus Birth Injury.

Our primary mission is to educate patients and families of children with brachial plexus injuries, as well as scientists and clinicians. Equipped with more accurate, evidence based information, we can all make more informed decisions about caring for our children and about which research priorities to pursue.
By creating a network of clinicians and scientist from around the world, Plexus Nexus is facilitating the flow of ideas around the globe. We believe that cooperation will lead to better clinical outcomes, innovation, and research goals.
Every child needs a voice. Not just those who have suffered an injury, but those children whom we can protect from having to suffer an injury. We advocate for programs to lower the risk of brachial plexus injuries and to improve the lives of children affected by this injury.
There are currently no agreed upon clinical standards for the prevention or treatment of brachial plexus birth injuries. We have formed a committee of experts in plexus injuries to develop clinical standards which will be evidence based, implementable, and adaptable.
Plexus Nexus is actively developing an international research program. Our first grant application was submitted last year, and we continue to build the resources and networks required for high quality outcomes research. Our scientists and researchers include neuroscientists, motion analysis experts, and clinicians.
Our members are not only selected for their clinical or scientific expertise, but also for their willingness to share their ideas and discoveries with our community without the need to be recognized for their contribution. As Harry Truman once said, 'it's amazing what you can accomplish when it doesn't matter who gets the credit.'
