Post-stroke motor and functional evaluations: a clinical correlation using Fugl-Meyer assessment scale, Berg balance scale and Barthel index

Abstract: -Stroke is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality. Sequels deriving from this event may lead to motor disability and from mild to severe deficits. In order to better classify sensory-motor dysfunction, balance and ability to perform activities of daily living, quantitative and qualitative evaluation scales have been used. Objective: To correlate the scales Fugl-Meyer assessment scale, Berg balance scale and Barthel index. Twenty subjects with sequel after a single, unilateral stroke in chronic phas… Show more

“…In addition, it is important to highlight that several factors may contribute to this event, such as injury time, level of motor impairment, intrinsic (non-neural) muscular factors, among others (13). Similar to that found by Oliveira et al (30), it was observed that a better FM score is also accompanied by an increase in BI, indicating that motor impairment is inversely proportional to satisfactory functional performance.…”

“…First, spasticity may manifest differently in different muscle groups, since skill, motor dexterity, and functional requirements are different for each structure. Second, measurement tools fail because they are not able to differentiate between a functional motor response and a compensatory strategy (30). In addition, it is important to highlight that several factors may contribute to this event, such as injury time, level of motor impairment, intrinsic (non-neural) muscular factors, among others (13).…”

“…The independence in daily life activities was evaluated by the Barthel Index (BI). [26][27][28] The BI evaluates the individual's autonomy for self care, and its maximum value is 100, with the cut point between 60 and 65; when less than 60 it represents greater dependence.…”
