Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the ability of the Disabilities of Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) and World Health Organization Quality of Life (WHOQOL–BREF) questionnaires to distinguish between stenosing flexor tenosynovitis (SFT) severity grades. It appears that the WHOQOL–BREF questionnaire is more appropriate than the DASH for use with clients with SFT, unless the clients are in the severe category.
