Purpose. To establish interrater and test–retest reliability of a clinical assessment of motor and sensory upper limb impairments in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy aged 5–15 years. Method. The assessments included passive range of motion (PROM), Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS), manual muscle testing (MMT), grip strength, the House thumb and Zancolli classification and sensory function. Interrater reliability was investigated in 30 children, test–retest reliability in 23 children. Results… Expand
