With the thought of increased efficiency in mind, a previous study 8 investigated the feasibility of reducing the number of CAHAI items and ultimately its administration time. Contemporary Management of Motor Control Problems: Twenty-one occupational therapists actively working in stroke settings were recruited by convenience sampling from 8 hospitals and participated in semistructured focus groups. A noted barrier to the successful implementation of standardized outcome measures is the time it takes to administer and score the measures.

The longitudinal validity analysis produced the following ROC curve areas: If the intended application of the CAHAI-9 is to predict CAHAI scores and change scores for a patient, our findings suggest that there is too much error to accomplish this with a arn level of precision.


Email alerts New issue alert. Total scores are obtained by summing the item scores.

Administration and Scoring Manual

Add comment Close atcivity form modal. The CAHAI was administered to the participants by their treating therapist at their initial visit and following completion of their rehabilitation program.

Copyright Thomas Land Publishers Inc www. Practice Management Information Corp; This study was approved by the research ethics boards of the participating hospitals.

The transcripts were analyzed thematically. Spearman rank-order correlation coefficient and intraclass correlation coefficient have been used to demonstrate high levels of interrater reliability.

A performance test for assessment of upper limb function in physical rehabilitation and research. The correlation between the scores of the 2 versions of the CAHAI at both the initial and follow-up visits was. The relationship for the follow-up scores not shown was virtually identical to that shown in Figure 1.

Five clients within 14 days of stroke were recruited by consecutive sampling from 1 metropolitan hospital and activigy in structured individual interviews.

Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity Inventory (CAHAI)

In a previously reported pilot study of 39 patients, we found the ROC curve areas to be 0. Previous investigations 78 have supported the psychometric properties of the CAHAI, and the following measurement properties have fhedoke reported: Existing measures have been criticized for focusing on impairments or consisting of contrived tasks that do not reflect real-life activities.


International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health. Prior to the study, written guidelines for the ARAT were developed from the literature. Ms Lambert and Mr Griffiths provided subjects and data collection. The intra- and interrater reliability of the Action Research Arm test: A total of 11 treating occupational therapists and physical therapists, with an average of 8.

I agree to the terms and conditions. Accessed April 20, Within the context of our article, the greater the area under an ROC curve, the higher the probability that the measure would correctly identify true change in upper-limb function. The Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity Inventory CAHAI is a new, validated upper-limb measure that uses a 7-point quantitative scale in order to assess functional recovery of the arm and hand after a stroke.
