Abstract:
Reports results of survey to assess the perception of safety among individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) living in the community. Questions related to demographics; physical mobility; crime, fire, and transportation safety; stress status; and general feelings of safety. The results indicate that most individuals with SCI perceive themselves as relatively safe in their environment. Respondents expressed a need for education in the area of fire safety.
