OBJECTIVE To investigate the relative and absolute reliabilities of the myotonometer. DESIGN Psychometric study. SETTING Three medical centers. PARTICIPANTS Patients with stroke (N=61). INTERVENTIONS Not applicable. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Muscle tone, elasticity, and stiffness of relaxed affected deltoid, triceps brachii, biceps brachii, extensor digitorum, flexor carpi radialis, and flexor carpi ulnaris were measured twice, 30 minutes apart, using the myotonometer.
