The leg scale highlights problems with walking, taking into account the use of a device. With respect to the aims of this study, some methodological issues need to be considered. Twelve patients disbaility CIDP responsive to intravenous Ig needed interval treatment with intravenous Ig to maintain the achieved improvement.
Ann Neurol 27 Suppl S21—S Published online Mar The ethics committee of the Erasmus University Hospital approved the study. Secondly, because the examined group consisted of only 20 patients, it is not clear whether the same rank ordering can be generated in a more substantial group of patients.
INCAT disability score: a critical analysis of its measurement properties.
A comprehensive critical analysis of its measurement properties has not been performed. Univariate linear regressions were carried out, including a restricted cubic spline function on independent variables see section Statistics and Herndon and Harrell; 14 intraclass correlation coefficients are shown. Strengths of the INCAT score include evaluation of upper and lower limb dysfunction, ease of administration feasibilityhigh face validity, and high reliability.

Clinimetric evaluation of a new overall disability scale in immune mediated polyneuropathies Merkies et al. Weaknesses of the scale include concerns about methodological quality of validation studies; failure to properly capture activity limitations due to proximal arm weakness, or fatigue; heavy individual item weighting; and poor sensitivity for detection of clinically important change.

J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 72 — Firstly, univariate linear regression analyses for the GBS Disability and Rankin Scales were carried out, although these are ordinal measures. During these investigations, we questioned whether the ODSS, an instrument applied by clinicians, would have the best correlation with patients’ own judgement of their clinical condition, when compared with other disability scales.
