Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper describes spatial and temporal distributions of bone loss in the paralysed limbs of patients during their first year after spinal cord injury (SCI). The objectives are to illustrate the inter subject variability in spatio temporal patterns of bone loss after SCI, and to explore the potential factors affecting them.
