    scales: Information form: Authors will ask to patients age, weight, height, gender, marital status, education level, diagnosis, time of injury, cause of injury, independence level, working or not working, presence of spasticity, presence of complications WHOQOL-BREF(World Health Organization Quality of Life Scale):The WHO Quality of Life Assessment (WHOQOL) is a generic quality of life instrument that was designed to be applicable to people living under different circumstances, conditions, and cultures. The short version known as WHOQOL-BREF with 26 items. It is based on a Likert-type scale and is scored from 1 to 5, with higher scores indicating a better quality of life. Intermittent Self-Catheterization Questionnaire (ISC-Q): This is a 24-item self-administered questionnaire. Each item is scored on a 5-point Likert-type scale ranging from 0 (strongly disagree) to 4 (strongly agree), and after the conversion of the 14 reverse-coded items to give a common range of 0-100, the scores are calculated by multiplying the mean value of all items within each domain by 25. The total ISC-Q score is then calculated from the simple average from across the four domains (0-100), with higher scores indicating a higher quality of life. Intermittent Catheterization Adherence Scale (ICAS): ICAS (IntermittentCatheterization Adherence Scale) is used to assess long-term patient adherence to prescribed ISC treatment. Binary answers were used for the first seven questions:yes = 1, no = 0, whereas the response options for the eighth question were graded on a 5-point Likert-type scale: 0 indicating "never," 0.25 "sometimes," 0.5 "often,"0.75 "regularly," and 1 "always," leading to a maximum possible score of 8. A patient's score is empirically classified into three intervals: strong adherence = 0; average adherence = 1-2; low adherence = 3-8. Mobile Application Usability Scale (MAUS): The scale measures mobile application usability which is formed with 10 constructs/factors which includes four items each (40 items at total). The scale measures using a 7-point Likert-type scale (1=strongly disagree…7=strongly agree)
