Factors that contribute to SCI rehabilitation outcome

Writing in Spinal Cord, 03/06/2013 Equebal A et al. from Department of Rehabilitation, NIOH, Kolkata, India look for variables that can influence rehabilitation outcome in a similar group of spinal cord injury patients. Looking at the outcome measures of improvement in American spinal injury association (ASIA) classification, differences in length of rehabilitation stay and spinal cord independence measure (SCIM).the group found that Age and gender are not significantly related to outcomes of rehabilitation or characteristics of SCI in their sample. They suggest more research to see which factors contribute more strongly to SCI rehabilitation.
