  • Stroke patients with “pusher syndrome” actively push away from the non-paretic side, leading to postural imbalance. The Clinical Scale for Contraversive Pushing (SCP) is the only known instrument developed to evaluate the degree of pushing, but its reliability and validity has not been evaluated. A pilot study of the Swedish version showed that the instrument needed modification. The main purpose of this study was to investigate the interrater reliability and validity of the modified SCP.
