Rehabilitation Measures Database
View descriptions, instructions, and bibliographies for over 300 rehabilitation instruments.
The Rehabilitation Measures Database (www.rehabmeasures.org) was developed to help clinicians and researchers identify reliable and valid instruments used to assess patient outcomes during all phases of rehabilitation. The database provides evidence-based summaries that include concise descriptions of each instrument’s psychometric properties, instructions for administering and scoring each assessment as well as a representative bibliography with citations linked to PubMed abstracts. Whenever possible, we have also included a copy of the instrument for the users to download or information about obtaining the instrument.
The development of this database was guided by focus groups composed of physical, occupational, and speech therapists, as well as psychologists and nurses with experience in rehabilitation medicine. Currently, we have reviewed nearly 300 instruments for use with a number of diagnosis including stroke, spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury among several others.
