0. No symptoms at all. 1. No significant disability, despite symptoms; able to carry out all usual duties and activities. 2. Slight disability; unable to carry out all. Four short, simple measures of arm function, suitable for use with patients recovering from acute stroke, are described. These tests are: the Frenchay Arm Test. Arm training using an Upper Limb Robot-Assisted Therapy Device can improve Frenchay Arm Test – The Frenchay Arm Test (FAT) is a measure of upper.

Evaluation of functional capacity after stroke as a basis for active intervention: The literature was searched from to Of this original group, articles were selected to receive more detailed examination. A form of measurement validity in which an instrument is used to predict some future performance. Key CCV concurrent validity. Tests were considered only if they were functional limitation oriented or measured functional limitations and impairments.

Arm function after stroke: measurement and recovery over the first three months.

Convergent validity of data obtained with the Action Research Arm Test as compared with data obtained with the Modified Motor Assessment Chart and the Motricity Index was established at. To establish psychometric properties of interrater reliability of disability and impairment scales, to determineconstruct and concurrent validity and responsiveness of data obtained with a test. Reliability of the Fugl-Meyer assessment of sensorimotor recovery following cerebrovascular accident.


It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide. Normal values for all tests were established on 63 controls. Upper-extremity motor function tests examined for this review were assigned to ordinal categories levels I, II, and III according to how many psychometric properties had demonstrable published results for those tests within a group of patients with strokes.

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Poole and Whitney, 19 A method to examine the quality of evidence has been proposed by Rudman and Hannah.

I agree to the terms and conditions. There may be fremchay in the scientific community as to whether some psychometric properties might be more important than others and which statistical tests would be most appropriate. Table 4 summarizes levels to which the tests were assigned. Please check for further notifications by email.

They directly address measurement questions of clinical interest. Using a modification of Sackett’s procedures Tab.

Arm function after stroke: measurement and recovery over the first three months.

Additional searches were performed using the 31 named tests as key words to be sure that other publications had not been missed in the 2 main literature searches. Support Center Support Center. For example, the Grenchay and Block Test and the Jebsen Hand Frfnchay were reported to be well-established trenchay, 2526 but no evidence, based on our criteria, was found to support their use with patients following a stroke.


Twelve of the 30 tests were excluded because bilateral activity was allowed during testing Tab. The inclusion criteria for this review were intended to identify articles that had the purpose of examining evidence to support the psychometric properties of tests, either as the primary objective or while examining upper-extremity motor function following a stroke.

The ICC value was established at.

We have made no attempt to argue for a value system to differentiate the statistics used. These predictions may be projected to a year after stroke onset. Tests of upper-extremity motor function used for people following a stroke have been described, but reliability and validity psychometric properties of measurements obtained with these tests have not been consistently established.

The hemiplegic arm after stroke: You have entered an invalid code.

Frenchay Arm test (FAT) – Allie: Abbreviation / Long Form Info.

Inclusion criteria for this review required that the studies reporting psychometric properties had used only subjects who had had a stroke. The post-stroke hemiplegic patient. Tables in the guide listed investigations in which the validity, reliability, and sensitivity of measurements obtained with various tests of function were examined.

Motor assessment scale for stroke patients:
