To categorize the spinal cord injury level and American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA) impairment scale into functional classification of shooting and to give information about shooting sport for the disabled to medical staffs, and to remind importance of sports activities for rehabilitation.
Seventy nine spinal cord injured players were classified into each functional classes by two international classifier. During the classification process, demographic data such as age, sex, duration, injury type and questions including attitude toward disabled shooting or benefits or difficulties from shooting were collected by interview.
Functional classes of players were closely related to injury level and ASIA impairment scale. Average dura-tion of shooting experience of men (8.01 years) was significantly different from that of women (5.29 years)(p<0.05). Self-motivated (39.3%) and disabled friends (21.5%) were leading motive providers followed by medical staff (20.2%), other shooting player or coach (12.7%), family (6.3%). Promoting self confidence (32.5%) was number one benefit from shooting and followed by making friends (22.1%), increasing independence (18.3%), and increasing in social participation (12.7%).
