Measurement of post-stroke spasticity based on tonic stretch reflex threshold: implications of stretch velocity for clinical practice.


PURPOSE The most commonly used method for the clinical evaluation of spasticity is the modified Ashworth scale (MAS), which is subjective. In this regard, the spasticity assessment through the tonic stretch reflex threshold, which is an objective method, has emerged as an alternative. It is based on the value of the dynamic stretch reflex threshold, which… (More)
