Abstract:
Study investigated to determine which components of the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) affect life satisfaction after traumatic brain injury. Multiple regression analysis indicated that demographic factors and the ICF components of body function and structure, activities, and participation significantly predicted life satisfaction and accounted for 17 percent of the variance.
