We present a new model for documentation and quantification of the functional outcome after nerve repair at the wrist or distal forearm level and a protocol that includes a numerical scoring system. The model, presented here along with validation and reliability test results, supports our hypothesis that the summarized test results reflecting specific functional limitations correlates well with the patient's opinion of the impact of the nerve injury on activities of daily living.
