This study was approved by the research ethics boards of the participating hospitals. Opinions varied as to whether CAHAI-9 should be routinely administered with clients who had mild and severe upper limb deficits, but therapists agreed it was appropriate for clients with moderate deficits. A curve area of 0.

Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity Inventory (CAHAI)

Twenty-one occupational therapists actively working in stroke settings were recruited by convenience sampling from 8 hospitals and participated in semistructured focus groups. The predictive equations for data obtained at the 2 assessment points were almost identical:.

Chedokee times vary with the selected version, approximately minutes. Contents Editors Categories Share Cite. The Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity Inventory CAHAI is a new, validated upper-limb measure that uses a 7-point quantitative scale in order to assess functional recovery of the arm and hand after a stroke.

A noted barrier to the successful implementation of standardized outcome measures is the time it takes to administer and score the measures.

Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity Inventory

For this reason, we band our first research question to ask whether the longitudinal validity of scores on the CAHAI versions was superior to that of scores on the ARAT. International Classification of Diseases, Clinical Modification. Retrieved from ” https: The intra- and interrater reliability of the Action Research Arm test: Receive exclusive offers and updates from Oxford Academic.


With the thought of increased efficiency in mind, a previous study 8 investigated the feasibility of reducing the number of CAHAI items and ultimately its administration time. A method of comparing the areas under receiving operating characteristic curves derived from the same cases.

Random assignment determined whether the treating therapist or the research therapist would complete the assessment first and which measure, the CAHAI or the ARAT, was administered first by the research therapist. The aim of this study was to explore both therapists’ and clients’ views on the clinical utility of CAHAI-9 within 14 iinventory of stroke.

Good results as an upper limb ability assessment for clients within 14 days of stroke. Sign In or Create an Account. If the intended application of the CAHAI-9 is to predict CAHAI scores and change scores for a patient, our findings suggest that there is too much error to accomplish this with a high level of precision. If one accepts a difference in curve areas of 0. Copyright Ivnentory Land Publishers Inc www.

Applying these assumptions, a sample size of 50 people with stroke per group, or in total, were required. Therapists made suggestions regarding refinement of the scoring and training to increase utility.

It uses the Fisher z transformation, which converts the Pearson r to a normal distribution and, in this way, allows a comparison of 2 or more measures with a dependent variable eg, gains in upper-limb function.

If andd purpose is to assess upper-limb recovery, there is strong evidence that the CAHAI is superior to the CAHAI-9; however, based on the difference in ROC curve areas, it is less clear whether the superiority is clinically important.

During the past 3 decades, there has been a substantial increase in the number of outcome measures for people with stroke. The difference in point estimates of the 2 CAHAI versions was less than the declared a priori clinical difference of 0.

All clients with stroke felt that the assessment provided reassurance regarding their chedike.

This dissatisfaction has led to the development and application of numerous outcome measures. All therapists agreed CAHAI-9 was suited for the stroke population and assisted identification of client abilities or difficulties within functional contexts.
