Abstract

Objective: To assess how frequently subjects with spinal cord injuries (SCIs) classified as American Spinal Injury Association Impairment Scale (AIS) grade A have substantial preserved motor function below the neurologic level of injury, despite having no preserved sensory or motor function at the S4-5 spinal cord segment.
