PS9.4: Self-care Health Platform for Individuals with Spinal Cord Injury

Secondary complications in individuals with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) can be prevented through adherence to self-care routines. Mobile health platform (mHealth) has been viewed as the technology that can feasibly facilitate self-care routines, such as managing medication, due to their 'always close, always present' nature. To empower individuals with SCI in taking more ownership of their self-care, the mHealth platform can function as an educational and personalized assistant platform.
