Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures

  1. Strength [One month]

    Strength measurement using the Daniels and Worthingham Scale. Minimum value = 0 , maximum value = 5. Higher scores mean a better outcome.

  2. Spasticity [One month]

    Spasticity measurement using the Ashworth modified scale. Minimum value = 0, maximum value = 4. Higher scores mean a worse outcome.

  3. Gait [One month]

    Gait measurement using the Tinetti scale. Minimum value = 0, maximum value = 28. Higher scores mean a better outcome.

  4. Balance [One month]

    Balance using the Berg Balance Scale. Minimum value = 0, maximum value = 56. Higher scores mean a better outcome.

  5. Joint range [One month]

    Joint range measure using goniometer
