01/01/2015 - "Powered robotic exoskeletons are an emerging technology of wearable orthoses that can be used as an assistive device to enable non-ambulatory individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) to walk, or as a rehabilitation tool to improve walking ability in ambulatory individuals with SCI. No studies to date have systematically reviewed the literature on the efficacy of powered exoskeletons on restoring walking function. "
05/01/2015 - "[Purpose] The study purpose was to investigate the test-retest reliability of the Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with assistive Technology 2.0-Korean version (QUEST-K) for individuals with traumatic spinal cord injury. "
01/01/2014 - "In this study, we designed a BoMI to smooth the way for operating computers, powered wheelchairs and other assistive technologies after cervical spinal cord injuries. "
06/01/2012 - "The aim of this study was to develop an understanding of how assistive technology (AT) contributes to self-perceived participation for individuals with spinal cord injuries and to propose a revised definition of AT in light of the findings. "
01/01/2007 - "The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationships between spinal cord injury (SCI), wheelchair users' satisfaction, perceptions of their community participation and quality of life (QoL).Thirty-one community wheelchair users with SCI were administered the Chinese version of the Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with assistive Technology (C-QUEST), the abbreviated Hong Kong version of the World Health Organization Quality of Life Questionnaire (WHO QoL-BREF (HK)) and selected items of 'Participation Restrictions' and 'Environmental Factors' of the International Classification of Functioning Disability and Health (ICF).
