Abstract

The Rivermead Motor Assessment is a standardized assessment of physical recovery after stroke. One part, the gross function scale, was tested to see if it was reliable if administered verbally. Forty-nine volunteers were recruited six months after a stroke and asked to rate their own ability verbally and perform the test items with an independent assessor. There was a significant level of agreement between the scores using the Spearman Rank Correlation (rs = 0.979; p <0.001). It can be concluded that the gross function scale of the Rivermead Motor Assessment is reliable when administered verbally with patients late after stroke.
