Abstract:

This multi-centered study 6 performance sites assesses the responsiveness of the Neuromuscular Recovery Scale NRS for people with spinal cord injury. The NRS evaluates true recovery of pre-injury movement, rather than compensatory progress, during inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation for spinal cord injury. The coordinating site and six participating sites are respectively, the University of Florida and the Ohio State University, Frazier Rehabilitation Institute, Kessler Rehabilitation Institute, TIRR at Memorial Hermann, Shepherd Center, and Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. Enrollment and data collection continue at all approved sites with 100 of the outpatient population completed and 97 of the in-patient population completed both initial and discharge NRS evaluations. Web-site construction is under development through streaming web services and video production is underway to provide an introduction to the NRS via video and an instructional guide. The NRS has been presented at the APTA Combined Sections and American Spinal Injury Asso. Meetings.
