Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

We investigated the application of the previously identified common component of activities of daily living, number of muscle groups, for two measures. The component demonstrated a moderate correlation with item difficulty on the Stoke Impact Scale (r = .62) and a correlation with the FIMâ„¢ (r = .17).
