People with SCI are at higher risk of obesity and chronic diseases, such as hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, than the general population. Researchers currently lack data on factors that influence weight gain among people with SCI. During this one-year observational study, study staff will enroll 60 individuals with SCI while they are inpatients at Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation (BSWIR). Data will be collected at 3 time periods (before discharge and 6 and 12 months after discharge) in order to better understand factors that affect weight gain over the first 12 months following discharge from inpatient rehabilitation, such as nutritional intake, environmental access, psychosocial factors, energy requirements and risk factors for metabolic syndrome. These data will be used to inform future interventions for people with SCI.


Inclusion Criteria: - Adults ≥18 years with complete or incomplete spinal cord injury (SCI) - Currently have or are expected to regain enough arm function within 6 months to feed themselves independently. - Injury occurred within previous 18 months Exclusion Criteria: - Unwilling or unable to complete repeat assessments - Cognitive impairment or brain injury that limits ability to provide data
