The Fugl-Meyer Assessment (FMA) scale is an impairment-based scale that is used to assess motor deficits in neurological patients, focusing mainly on stroke patients in this study. It includes items of upper and lower-limb sensation and motor control. However, in this study, only the upper limb motor control will be used. Listed items in this scale are scored between 0, 1, and 2 where a score of 2 denotes the ability to respond correctly to a listed item. The scale consists of 62 items.

Motor component of Functional Independence Measure (M-FIM) will also be used in this study. It takes approximately 30 minutes to administer the tool.

(Barak, 2006) For familiarity reasons of usage of tools, M-FIM will be used for this study. The Motricity Index (MI) will also be used for measuring the participant’s upper extremity power. In this outcome measure, it involves grading strength by basing on patient’s ability to activate a muscle group, move a segment of the upper extremity through a range of motion and resist force from the examiner. Criterion and construct validity of this tool has been undertaken in a study and has shown significant correlations with other outcome measures such as the use of Manual Muscle Testing and dynamometer.
