Abstract:
Survey investigated wheelchair and related factors that affect the participation of individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) in daily activities performed in the home, community, and during transportation. Subjects were asked 5 questions within each setting related to their perceived reason for functional limitations. Results revealed that the wheelchair was the most commonly cited factor limiting participation, followed by physical impairment, and physical environment.
