To be included in the study, the following criteria must have been met: (1) diagnosis of SCI (acute, new onset of spinal cord symptoms secondary to traumatic or nontraumatic SCI); (2) first rehabilitation admission; and (3) no significant cognitive impairment as demonstrated by a Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) score ≥24. Participants were asked to participate in the study within the first 2 days of arrival to the rehabilitation unit. Each participant provided informed consent.
