- Higher scores generally indicate less risk for development of a pressure ulcer.
- Normative data has not been established for the SCI population.
MCID: not established

No values were reported for the reliability of the Gosnell measure for the SCI population.
- The Gosnell measure has a significantly Low correlation with the stage of the first pressure ulcer (Spearman’s r = 0.254) and the number of ulcers developed (Spearman’s r = 0.297).
- Ranking N/A: The Gosnell measure was 62.2% accurate in predicting pressure ulcer development; it has a sensitivity of 18.4% and a specificity of 90.4%.
