Differences in resting metabolic rate between paraplegic and able-bodied subjects are explained by differences in body composition.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Little is known about the relation between body composition and energy metabolism in paraplegia. OBJECTIVE We investigated the relation between body composition and energy metabolism in healthy paraplegics as compared with able-bodied control subjects. We hypothesized that paraplegics would have lower fat-free mass (FFM), body cell mass (BCM… (More)
