Abstract:
Article examines various factors that affect the design, analysis, and interpretation research on aging with spinal cord injury (SCI). These include factors that apply to aging in the general population, such as the effects of chronological age and the effects associated with the historical period in which the research takes place. Factors specifically related to SCI include duration of injury, age at injury, level and completeness of injury, and gender. Research specific to a particular physiological system and related morbidity in those aging with SCI is currently limited to the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems. There have been no aging-related SCI studies specifically pertaining to the skin, nervous, endocrine, or immune systems.
