Abstract

Date Presented 4/16/2015

A measurement model with two constructs (weight of objects and distance from the floor) explained 83% of the variance (p < .01) for the challenging levels of the gross upper-extremity (GUE) measure of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF; World Health Organization, 2001). This finding suggests a possible underlying measurement model for upper-extremity function.
