Abstract

Monitoring a range of physiological parameters in SCI patients during extended periods of daily activity and during therapy in rehabilitation raises a no of practical issues. A totally portable system with sensors and data logger can provide a clinically useful monitoring system for SCI to study the behaviour of physiological parameters during rehabilitation allows it to be prescribed and optimised to match the individual patient's needs. Issues affecting our study will be illustrated by looking at results in the most compromised tetraplegic group.
