Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

The Fugl–Meyer Assessment cutoff values to identify “can use spoon” and “can use chopsticks” were 54/53 and 62/61 points, with sensitivity and specificity of 86.7% and 96.4% and 100.0% and 97.1%, respectively. These optimal cutoff scores may be able to identify upper-limb feeding performance.
