Measurement in neurological rehabilitation

Curr Opin Neurol Neurosurg. 1992 Oct;5(5):682-6.

The measurement of impairment and disability can improve patient care and is now essential in clinical audit. Practical, useful measures are slowly being developed, both for use in specific diseases and for more general use. This review discusses both new measures and new work on more well-established measures.
