What is the Relation Between Motor Function Assessment Outcome and Activities of Daily Living after Stroke?

Ozdincler Razak Arzu and Ersoz Burcu

Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between motor function assessment outcomes and ability to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADL) among the stroke patients. Another aim was to identify this relationship from the other factors which affects the prognosis in subacute phase. Modified Rankin Scale (MRS), Motor Assessment Scale (MAS), Motricity Index (MI) and Functional Independence Measure-motor (FIM-motor) were applied to fifty-five stroke inpatients at our stroke unit. Significantly high correlation rate was found between MAS, MI, and FIM-motor. Dependency in ADL after stroke is primarily determined by degree of motor function impairment. When the motor function level was well known in the subacute phase, the dependency level of ADL in stroke patients can be estimated.
