    Abstract

    Study design: Cross-sectional study. Objectives: To determine the relationship of health related functional status with lesion level and endurance capacity in persons with spinal cord injury (SCI). Methods: Thirty-seven men with SCI were divided in four lesion groups: high tetraplegia (motor complete; C5-C6, n= 10), low tetraplegia (motor complete, C6/7-C8, n=9), motor incomplete tetraplegia (n=7), and paraplegia (n=11). Health related functional status was measured with the short version of the Sickness Impact Profile (SIP68), including a physical (SOM), psychological (PSY) and social subscore (SOC).
