Abstract:
Presents guidelines for assessing the neurological status of patients with spinal cord injury (SCI), as well as a standard approach to using such data for classifying and quantifying the injury. The goal is that both the measurement technique and the use of the resulting data, clinically and in research, should be consistent across practitioners and researchers.
