Introduction: the Brazilian version of the Functional Independence Measure (FIM) was developed in the 2000. Studies of validity is still required in order corroborate its use in rehabilitation assessment of Brazilian individuals, since local peculiarities may determine differences in the data provided by such instrument. Objectives: the aim of this study is test construct validity of the FIM by checking its convergent validity in groups of patients with impairments expected to develop specific… 
Avaliação funcional de pessoas com lesão medular: utilização da escala de independência funcional - MIF
TLDR
There was average functional improvement in all categories of body care, sphincter control, transfers, locomotion and stairs, and rehabilitation promotes gains in functional independence, since there was an average increase in functional gain of people with spinal cord injury.
Validação, no Brasil, do Índice de Barthel em idosos atendidos em ambulatórios
TLDR
The Barthel Index is recommended for evaluating the functional ability of elderly patients being treated in outpatient care in Brazil through analysis of reliability and validity.
Instrumentos de avaliação da função de membros superiores após acidente vascular encefálico: uma revisão sistemática Upper limb functional outcome instruments for poststroke patients: a systematic review
TLDR
These instruments showed to be complementary for assessing upper extremity function in poststroke patients in as much as they respectively include structural and functional aspects, task performance, self-care and interpersonal relations, being therefore recommended for clinical use.
Avaliação da medida de independência funcional de indivíduos com seqüelas de acidente vascular encefálico (AVE) = Functional independence measure evaluation in individuals with stroke disability
TLDR
In the hospitalar phase, patients who have suffered a stroke presented a faster recovery in the first weeks, and those patients in the outpatient phase have remained stable.
Evolução da independência funcional de idosos atendidos em programa de assistência domiciliária pela óptica do cuidador
TLDR
The results suggest that the home care attendance was revealed as a capable modality to keep or to delay the functional decline from elderly.
Validation of the Brazilian version of the Spinal Cord Independence Measure III.
TLDR
The Brazilian version of the SCIM III is easy to understand, has good psychometric properties, and is valid.
Estudo comparativo da independência funcional e qualidade de vida entre idosos ativos e sedentários
TLDR
This study highlights the importance of physical activity practice for maintenance of good FI and QOL in the elderly.
Perfil funcional dos pacientes atendidos no setor de fisioterapia neurológica do Promove São Camilo
TLDR
There was no statistically significant differences among FIMs of patients of patients having segmental, suprasegmental injuries and lesions in other regions of the nervous system, suggesting that for the studied population the factor "place of injury" has not interfered in patients functional prognosis.
Análise da capacidade funcional de idosos intitucionalizados
This study examined the degree of functional ability of elderly institutionalized and possible associations with some sociodemographic variables. The elderly are part of the Bread of San Antonio
INDEPENDÊNCIA FUNCIONAL NA LESÃO MEDULAR
TLDR
The assessment by the FIM scale allows you to check the level of independence of patients and to quantify the effective gain after rehabilitation and can modify the treatment strategy neurofuncionnal when needed.

Adaptation of the Functional Independence Measure for use in Turkey
TLDR
Adaptation of the FIM has been successful and it can be used in Turkey as long as the limitations are recognized, and Rasch analysis showed that bladder and bowel items compromise unidimensionality in the motor scale.
Cognitive dysfunction in spinal cord injury patients: sensitivity of the Functional Independence Measure subscales vs neuropsychologic assessment.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the FIM cannot be a substitute for comprehensive neuropsychologic assessment in SCI patients.
Functional assessment of patients with spinal cord injury: measured by the motor score and the Functional Independence Measure
TLDR
It appears that timing of the highest physical FIM improvement for each neurological level can exist, and it is important not to delay the start of the rehabilitation of patients with spinal cord injury in proper time.
The stroke impairment assessment set: its internal consistency and predictive validity.
TLDR
The unidimensionality of the SIAS was confirmed, and theSIAS total scores proved useful for stroke outcome prediction.
Comparison of the psychometric characteristics of the functional independence measure, 5 item Barthel index, and 10 item Barthel index in patients with stroke
TLDR
The results showed that the BI and FIM motor subscale had very acceptable and similar psychometric characteristics and the BI-5 appeared to have limited discriminative ability at admission, particularly for patients with severe disability; otherwise the BI had very adequate psychometric properties.

TLDR
When chronological age was added to the number of years post-injury, significant increases in disability, handicap, and costs of care were noted at all neurological levels.
