Stroke Arm Ladder

Purpose of the measure

The Stroke Arm Ladder was developed from an existing bank of test items used to evaluate upper extremity function in patients with stroke. The Stroke Arm Ladder incorporates observable tests of capacity or performance and questions aimed at identifying activity and participation components of the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). The measure includes items that cover a wide range of difficulty levels.
