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.

Showing of extracted citations. Stage 6 – Coordination and patterns of movement are near normal.

Testing for tone – part passively put through available range of motion briskly with two repetitions. The original database consisted of patient demographic dtroke, Impairment Inventory scores, and total Activity Inventory scores for patients.

Tasks can only be attempted twice in the Impairment Inventory and once in the Activity Inventory. Test-retest reliability for the total scores ranged from 0. Standard starting positions are indicated at the top of each Score Form. When a curvilinear relationship was evident, we examined higher-order polynomials and tested whether the addition of higher-order terms contributed to the predictive ability of the revised model. Full range of motion and rapid complex movements with normal timing.

Ensure prognostic indicators are noted that assist in predicting shoulder pain. Denise JohnsonJocelyn E. Visible muscle contractions qualify as movement. Impairment Inventory yields a total score of 42, with lower scores indicating chedoke-mvmaster impairment. A longitudinal prognostic study using historical data obtained from patients admitted post cerebrovascular accident was undertaken.

One possible explanation for the large shrinkage value is that there were differences between chedoke-mvmaster two samples of patients e. Participants and Procedure The database used in this study was originally developed for a previous study that gathered data retrospectively from patient charts. Further research to establish predictive models using alternative statistical procedures is warranted.

Involves facilitated active movement, in any range. Open in a separate window.

Chedoke-McMaster Stroke Assessment

Phasic stretch reflexes are absent or hypoactive. For the current study, patients were excluded from the data analysis if they were admitted to the rehabilitation unit more than 45 days post stroke, if their chedke-mcmaster were incomplete, or if they had experienced a stroke event other than a unilateral stroke.


Presentation of a modified chart for motor capacity assessment and its reliability. Long-term neuropsychological and functional outcomes in stroke survivors: First is the Impairment Inventory, which assesses 6 domains shoulder pain and stages of recovery of postural control, arm, hand, leg and foot.

If standard position is changed, indicate on form. When instructing patient, use simple commands.

Using the predictive equations and applying the patient’s CMSA scores at admission, predicted discharge scores can be determined for each Assfssment stage and for the total AI and each AI index. Maximal or total assistance is required, or the activity is not performed. Testing takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes to complete an assessment. Clinical Vignette A year-old chedoke-mccmaster was admitted to the rehabilitation unit after a right cerebral vascular accident CVA 16 days ago.

The client can sit either unsupported on the side of the bed or plinth, or supported in a chair or wheelchair. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. A large variety of environmentally specific patterns of movement are now possible. Physiotherapists and student physiotherapists assessed patients with 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.

Proficient outcome measures must display high levels of discrimination and the ability to detect change, and previous investigations have provided support for these measurement properties as they apply to the CMSA when applied to patients with stroke.

This assessment tool was initially developed and validated for use with clients from an inpatient and day-hospital population. The minimal clinically important difference MCID of the Activity Inventory for neurological clients, including those with stroke, is 7 points when determined a physiotherapist, 4, 6, 7 and the MCID of the Activity Inventory is 8 points when determined by clients with stroke and their caregivers.


Showing of 20 references. Predicting sensorimotor recovery following stroke rehabilitation. Stage 1 – Flaccid paralysis is present. The other 74 patients were included in the data analysis. Measurement properties of a standardized version of the two-minute walk test for individuals with neurological dysfunction. Staging motor impairment after stroke. For approximately 20 years, clinicians in rehabilitation settings have been using the CMSA predictive equations developed by Gowland to enhance clinical decision making.

The newly retrieved information consisted of date of stroke, date of admission to and discharge from the rehabilitation unit, and scores on the 15 individual tasks of the Activity Inventory. The South Australian Stroke Study.

Assessmeent considerations would include specifying assessment times related to time post stroke, rather than using admission and discharge dates, to increase accuracy of predictions. Estimating the accuracy of the Chedoke—McMaster Stroke Assessment predictive equations for chedoke-mcaster rehabilitation. RamsaranMelissa E. The goal of our study was to estimate the predictive accuracy and clinical usefulness of reported CMSA equations.

C A Gowland Stroke Recommendations are assfssment facilities test interrater and intrarater reliability, as appropriate, in regards to administration and scoring guidelines and clinical application. First we examined scatter plots of the actual discharge dependent variable and admission independent variable data with the line of best fit superimposed on the graph.

Used to determine the presence and severity of common physical impairments. The content on or accessible through Physiopedia is for informational purposes only.

Atroke Activity Inventory yields a total score ofwith lower scores indicating greater impairment. In the absence of previous cross-validation studies, determining the accuracy of the predictive equations will provide important information to health professionals working in stroke rehabilitation about the equations’ value in a clinical setting, and is in keeping with the mandate of evidence-based practice.
