Background: Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a life-long condition, which can significantly impact the health and well-being of affected individual. Appropriate administration is essential to maximize health related quality of life. Purpose: To calculate the clinical significance of the Spinal cord independence measure ? III (SCIM-III) according to distribution based approaches. Objective: To find comparison between all self-components with total score in patients with spinal cord injury. Method: The evaluation was carried out on 10 traumatic spinal cord injury patients out of which 7 were male and 3 were female patients. All patients were aged between 18 to 55 years. All subjects and their relatives received full information about the study and they were provided the written informed consent prior to their participation in the study. Data required for Spinal cord independence measure- III as well as spinal cord injury patients were entered into PubMed, Google scholar and Ovid databases, which included Medline, CINAHL, and Journals at Ovid full text, EBM reviews. Studies written in English language were included. Result: P-value was considered extremely significancein: self ? care and total score with correlation co-efficient r = 0.52; Mobility and total score with correlation co-efficient r = 0.34. Also displays linear regression with 95% confidence interval of self-care and total score, respiration and sphincter management and total score and Mobility and total score. Conclusion: The results of this study through interview and observation, which appears to be useful for research of spinal cord injury patient groups. We believe that the present SCIM-III version will be a valuable tool for assessment in hospitalized/ outpatient individuals with SCI.
