The assessment of muscle strength is important for rehabilitation of patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). However, current methods are time-consuming and have low sensitivity to reflect the changes of muscle strength. Therefore, this study explored the correlation between the five times sit- to-stand (FTSST) and lower extremity muscle strength (LEMS) in fourteen ambulatory patients with SCI. Every subject was assessed for the FTSST and LEMS using a hand held dynamometer. The findings were… CONTINUE READING
