Abstract:
Study of the relationship between satisfaction with life after spinal cord injury (SCI) and access to the environment, based on data from 18 Model Spinal Cord Injury Systems. Participants were 650 adults with SCI evaluated at 1 or 2 years post-injury using the Satisfaction with Life Scale and selected items from the Craig Handicap Assessment and Reporting Technique (CHART). Findings indicate that access to the environment was positively and linearly associated with satisfaction with life.
