32 articles about the validation process of medullary lesion ICF core set have been published

This project represents an important step to develop the use of ICF in the clinic care context

The results obtained from the validation process confirm the need to invest much more on training and validation of tools for the use of ICF. Some critical conditions are still existent and require an improvement by research international groups
