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.
