Abstract

Date Presented 4/18/2015

The Functional Composite Movement Scale (FCMS) is a promising clinical tool to assess quantitative changes in upper-extremity function. FCMS scores may be generalizable to the performance of activities of daily living (ADLs). When tested, the FCMS showed one statistically significant difference in functional movement of children with cerebral palsy (CP) after modified constraint induced movement therapy (mCIMT) intervention.
