Functional Recovery Measures for Spinal Cord Injury: An Evidence-Based Review for Clinical Practice and Research
The multinational work group recommends that the latest version of the SCIM (SCIM III) continue to be refined and validated and subsequently implemented worldwide as the primary functional recovery outcome measure for SCI. Expand
Neurologic recovery after traumatic spinal cord injury: data from the Model Spinal Cord Injury Systems.
OBJECTIVE To present data on neurologic recovery gathered by the Model Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Systems over a 10-year period. DESIGN Case series. SETTING Twenty-one Model SCI Systems. PATIENTSExpand
International standards to document remaining autonomic function after spinal cord injury
Based upon current knowledge of the neuroanatomy of autonomic function this paper provides a framework with which to communicate the effects of specific spinal cord injuries on cardiovascular, broncho-pulmonary, sudomotor, bladder, bowel and sexual function. Expand
The Capabilities of Upper Extremity instrument: reliability and validity of a measure of functional limitation in tetraplegia.
The Capabilities of Upper Extremity (CUE) instrument, designed to measure upper extremity functional limitations in individuals with tetraplegia, exhibits good homogeneity, reliability, and validity; further work is needed to determine its sensitivity to change in function. Expand
Assessment of autonomic dysfunction following spinal cord injury: rationale for additions to International Standards for Neurological Assessment.
A comprehensive set of definitions of general autonomic nervous system dysfunction following SCI that should be assessed by clinicians are proposed to improve the evaluation of neurological function in individuals with SCI. Expand
Validity of the Walking Scale for Spinal Cord Injury and Other Domains of Function in a Multicenter Clinical Trial
The combination of the LEMS, BBS, WISCI, 50FW-S, and LFIM appears to encompass adequate descriptors for outcomes of walking trials for incomplete SCI, supported by significant correlations with all measures at 3, 6, and 12 months. Expand
2009 Review and Revisions of the International Standards for the Neurological Classification of Spinal Cord Injury
The ISNCSCI was recently reviewed by the ASIA's Education and Standards Committees, in collaboration with the International Spinal Cord Society's Education Committee, and it was recommended that the numerous items that were revised should be published and a precedent established for a routine published review.
