Predictive value of upper-limb accelerometry in acute stroke with hemiparesis

Nick Gebruers, PhD, PT, et al.

The use of accelerometers in patients with stroke is novel, especially in the acute phase of stroke. The use of accelerometers in acute stroke is warranted since no cooperation of the patient is needed to collect data. We investigated whether arm use, measured by accelerometers, has a predictive value for the disability status 3 mo after stroke. It was demonstrated that age and the amount of arm use could correctly predict (85%) the modified Rankin Scale score after 3 mo of follow-up.
