Abstract

Date Presented 4/1/2017

We tested an occupational therapy intervention designed to prevent medically serious pressure ulcers (MSPrUs) in 232 adults with spinal cord injury. MSPrU rates did not differ between the intervention and control groups. The intractable nature of the ulcer threat and lack of power may have contributed to the null result.
