Do you have hints for spinal cord injuries dealing with body composition and nutritional / metabolic status?


Do you have any hints for patients with SCI (spinal cord injuries)? Are there any sites you know of containing that kind of information?

I have only found two publication so far dealing with “body composition” and “assessment of the nutritional and metabolic status of paraplegics”. Any help from your side would be highly appreciated! Greetings from Switzerland!

Well, I have been looking for similar info and haven’t found any yet. So if you find something good, please forward to me as I would like to include assessment for persons with spinal cord injuries in my Healthy Body Calculator®. I don’t feel that ambulatory weight and calorie estimates are appropriate.

What are your needs/application for body composition and assessment of the nutritional and metabolic status of people with paraplegia?
