Abstract:
We propose to carry out BMCA assessments on SCI patients entering and exiting our system and compare them with currently collected SCIMS data on those individuals. We hypothesize that individuals with 1) more normal patterns of motor control initially and 2) greater change at their discharge eval will show greater clinical and functional improvements over the course of their inpatient rehabilitation.
