OBJECTIVE To examine the clinimetric characteristics of the Trunk Impairment Scale (TIS). This newly developed scale evaluates motor impairment of the trunk after stroke. The TIS scores, on a range from 0 to 23, static and dynamic sitting balance as well as trunk co-ordination. It also aims to score the quality of trunk movement and to be a guide for treatment. DESIGN Two physiotherapists observed each patient simultaneously, but scored independently. Each patient was re-examined by one of… CONTINUE READING
