Abstract

The demonstrated HRQL profiles in SCL persons have shown that valid measures can provide new information of clinical value beyond the self-evident physical and practical restrictions due to injury. Illustrative comparisons, such as those presented here between Australia and Sweden, may extend our knowledge about areas where the SCL persons themselves are the logical experts, for example, maintenance of personal roles, social interaction and emotional well-being.
