- The ISAFSCI is an assessment designed to determine which autonomic functions are intact, impaired or lost following SCI.
- The assessment form consists of 2 main sections: 1) general autonomic function, and 2) lower urinary tract, bowel and sexual function.
Body Functions ▶ Self Care
The functional performance categories are scored on a 2 point scale from 0 (complete loss of control) to 2 (normal function).

# of studies reporting psychometric properties: 1
MCID: not established in SCI
SEM: not established in SCI
MDC: not established in SCI
Inter-rater reliability of the COPM is Moderate with the general autonomic component (κ=0.41-0.6) and High within the lower urinary tract, bowel, and sexual function component (κ=0.62-0.88).
