Purpose of the measure. The Chedoke-McMaster Stroke Assessment measures physical impairment and disability in clients with stroke and other neurological. The Chedoke-McMaster Stroke Assessment measures physical impairment and disability in clients with stroke and other neurological impairment. The measure. The Chedoke-McMaster Stroke Assessment (Chedoke Assessment) is a reliable and valid measure used to assess physical impairment and disability in clients.

The other 74 patients were included in the chedoke-mcmaater analysis. The width of prediction bands depends on the variability in the data, the mean score, and the distance of a particular value from the mean score: No shoes and socks.

The maximum total score of the AI is ; higher scores indicate greater functional independence.

Chedoke-McMaster Stroke Assessment

An assessment of the osteogenic index of therapeutic exercises for stroke patients: All physiotherapists working in the stroke rehabilitation unit were involved in reviewing the patient charts and extracting the data.

Relationships among walking performance, postural assesssment, and functional assessments of the hemiplegic patient. Movements combining antagonistic synergies can be performed when the prime movers are the strong components of the synergy.

To ensure thorough understanding, a movement task may be demonstrated, a patient’s limb may be passively moved through a task or patient may be asked to perform a task on the uninvolved side. There has been no research to evaluate the accuracy of the predictive equations developed for use with clients undergoing rehabilitation for stroke. These limb synergies consist of stereotypical flexor and extensor movements.

There is aesessment evidence of functional impairment compared to the normal side. Further research to establish predictive models using alternative statistical procedures is warranted.

The CMSA was initially developed for the assessment of patients with stroke, its application has been more widely demonstrated, specifically for the Activity Inventory. Miller is an instructor of training workshops on the administration, scoring, and clinical application of the CMSA.


The content on or strke through Physiopedia is for informational purposes only. The 15 items are scored on a 7-point scale 1 through 7, complete dependence to independent, respectively. Showing of 20 references. Visible muscle contractions qualify as movement. Encourage good sitting posture for testing ie.

Measuring physical impairment and disability with the Chedoke-McMaster Stroke Assessment.

The physiotherapist calculates expected discharge scores using Gowland’s predictive equations. The CMSA can be used with confidence as both a clinical and a research tool that can discriminate among subjects and evaluate patient outcomes. Open in a separate window. Abnormal patterns of movement with faulty timing emerge when rapid or complex chedoke-mcmastrr are requested.

Sitting either unsupported over the side of the bed or plinth, or supported in a chair or wheelchair. StratfordJulie Richardson NeuroRehabilitation Physiopedia is not a substitute for professional advice or expert medical services from a qualified healthcare provider.

A predictive model is reliable to the extent that it generalizes to samples other than the one used to create it. No special training is required. Data were abstracted for chedole-mcmaster patients undergoing rehabilitation post stroke who also had documented admission and discharge CMSA scores. Validation of a modified chart for motor capacity assessment. The synergistic movements can be elicited voluntarily, but are obligatory.

These criteria were chosen in an effort to achieve a more homogeneous sample.

This Activity Inventory is made up of a gross motor function and walking subscale. Physiotherapists and student physiotherapists assessed patients assessjent the CMSA according to the instructions outlined in the CMSA manual, 18 and all patients received conventional stroke rehabilitation during their stay in the rehabilitation unit. First is the Impairment Inventory, which assesses 6 domains shoulder pain and stages of recovery of postural control, arm, hand, leg and foot.


A methodological framework for assessing health indices. Stage 5 – Shoulder pain is noted during testing, but the functional activities that the client normally performs are not affected by the pain.

Furthermore, the confidence bands associated with both II and AI scores are too large to be considered clinically useful. One possible explanation for the large shrinkage value is that there were differences between the two samples of patients e.

Maximal or total assistance is required, or the activity is not performed. Original Editors – Tiara Mardosas.

Applied regression analysis and other multivariable methods. Encourage good sitting posture during testing ie. For example, there are no data aassessment their experience in working with patients with stroke or on their formal training or lack thereof in administering and scoring the CMSA.

The transferring of data on several occasions by different individuals may have resulted in errors in the database used for the study. The ability to predict strke following stroke yields several benefits: A “normal” variety of rapid, age appropriate complex movement patterns are possible with normal timing, co-ordination, strength and endurance. Clinical Vignette A year-old man was admitted to the rehabilitation unit after a right cerebral vascular accident CVA 16 days ago.

Second is the Activity Inventory, formerly Disability Inventory, which assesses gross motor function 10 items evaluating rolling, sitting, transferring and standing and walking 5 items [1].
