Functional Outcome Measures
Functional Independence Measure (FIM)
Developed in 1983
18 items, motor and cognitive subscales
Intended populations:
-Geriatrics, MS, Stroke, SCI, General Pain
Use in amputee population
- Total FIM score is not useful for predicting prosthetic use and success for future rehab (Leung EC, Rush PJ, Devlin M, 2006)
- Motor subscale score is highly predictive of successful prosthetic rehab (Leung EC, Rush PJ, Devlin M, 2006)
- Predictability higher in patients with fewer comorbidites (Muecke L, Shekar S, Dwyer D, Israel E, Flynn JP, 1992)
- Time consuming
- Cost
- Training
Amputee Mobility Predictor without Prosthesis
20 Items, 38 possible points
Specifically designed to assess mobility without prosthesis and predict level of function with prosthesis
15 minutes or less to complete
High interrater(.99)and intrarater(.97) reliability
Excellent tool for classification of patients into Medicare K-levels (classification system that determines the prosthetic components for which Medicare will pay)
Free to administer, no training necessary
(Gailey et al, 2002)
Activity Measure for Post-Acute Care
Tool specifically designed for use in all rehab settings
- Allows for continued assessment as patient is transferred between settings
269 Items divided into 3 subscales: basic mobility (131), daily activities (88), and cognition (50)
CAT Software
Short forms for quicker testing
More sensitive to change than the FIM (Coster et al, 2006)
Appropriate for a variety of diagnoses- including amputees!
