The purpose of this study is to describe any changes in physical function that people with an incomplete SCI may have as they go through middle age.
You are receiving this email through your health care provider at the New England Regional SCI Center at Boston Medical Center , who sent this invitation to their email listserv on behalf of the person doing the research study. The researcher did not see your name, address, or any information about you. You are receiving this email because you may have experienced an incomplete spinal cord injury years ago and are now in your “middle years”.
To be eligible for this study you must:
1. Have had a traumatic incomplete spinal cord injury at least 15 years ago
2. Be 35 to 65 years old
3. Be able to read or speak English
If you qualify for this study and decide to participate, you will be asked to participate in one interview:
· Any participant, anywhere in the world, may choose an e-mail interview, meaning you may use e-mail to answer study questions about your experience.
· Participants within about a 2 hour-drive of Boston may choose instead to meet with the interviewer for a face-to-face interview that will last about 90 minutes.
Participants will receive compensation for completing a study interview.
