  1. AIS ASIA Impairment Scale, ASIA American Spinal Cord Injury Association, A No motor or sensory function is preserved below the neurological level, B Sensory function is preserved but no motor function below the neurological level, C Motor function is preserved below the neurological level, and more than half of the key muscles below the neurological level have a muscle grade < 3 out of 5 (manual muscle testing), D motor function is preserved below the neurological level, and at least half of the key muscles below the neurological level have a muscle grade of ≥3 out of 5, E motor and sensory function are normal
