    Details

    After translation and back translation of the SCI-SCS, 93 patients between the ages of 18 and 78 years with SCI, American Spinal Injury Association impairment scale grades from A to D and at least 6 months after injury were assessed. Participants rated the SCI-SCS 2-3 day apart, and test-retest agreement was investigated. Factor analysis was done and convergent validity was investigated by correlating the SCI-SCS with the Spinal Cord Injury Spasticity Evaluation Tool (SCI-SET), Functional Ambulation Categories (FAC), 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36), and Spinal Cord Independence Measure III (SCIM-III).
