Purpose of the measure
The Rivermead Mobility Index (RMI) was developed from the Rivermead Motor Assessment
Gross Function subscale as a means to quantify mobility disability in clients with stroke.
The RMI is clinically relevant in testing functional abilities such as gait, balance, and
transfers (Forlander & Bohannon, 1999).
