Abstract

Date Presented 4/16/2015

Poststroke rehab has turned toward treatment of bimanual coordination. However, there is no comprehensive measure of bimanual function. The Bimanual Assessment Measure (BAM) will be the first comprehensive measure of bimanual functioning, and it has good content validity based on input from individuals with stroke and occupational therapists (OTs).
