An Integrative Review of Clinical Outcome Assessments Used to Measure Carryover Effects of Exoskeletons and Functional Electrical Stimulation in Spinal Cord Injury

- Functional electrical stimulation (FES) and exoskeletons are rehabilitation technologies that provide direct functional ability and potential carryover effects
- Carryover effects may be due to neuromuscular recovery, behavioral compensation, or a combination of both (Figure 1)
- Clinical outcome assessments (COAs) are used to measure recovery of function with and without the device on
