Simulation and validation of a Computerised System for Assessing 5 Functions in Patients with Stroke

Takeaway

  • The Computerized Adaptive Testing System for Assessing 5 Functions in Patients with Stroke (CAT-5F) has sufficient reliability, validity and responsiveness to assess the 5 primary rehabilitation targets post-stroke - basic activities of daily living (BADL); postural control; UE/LE motor functions and mobility.

Why this matters

  • The CAT-5F is more efficient and imposes less physical burden than the current separate tests used to measure the 5 primary rehabilitation targets.
