Functional recovery and long-term outcome predictions in patients with traumatic brain injury

Takeaway

  • Patients with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury experienced more cognitive and functional recovery from inpatient rehabilitation admission to discharge compared to post-discharge.

Why this matters

  • This study informs clinicians about functional change over time for patients with traumatic brain injury, allowing them to understand the influence of the timing of inpatient rehabilitation on cognitive and motor recovery.
