Abstract:
Presents statistics surrounding incidence of spinal cord injuries (SCI) caused by accidents in swimming pools, including demographics of injured people as well as circumstances surrounding accidents. Discusses implications for SCI prevention programs and the need for further research into the mechanism of injuries (i.e. whether injuries occur on impact with the water or when a person's head hits the bottom of the pool).
