Evaluating motor recovery early after stroke: comparison of the Fugl Meyer Assessment and the Motor Assessment Scale
Univariate analysis revealed that admission walking speed, Modified Elderly Mobility Scale score, Motor Assessment Scale
Items 1 to 5, the motor component of the Functional Independence Measure, Functional Independence Measure, and Timed Up and Go predicted discharge walking speed.

In participants with a neurological diagnosis activity was also measured using the Motor Assessment Scale
(Carr et al 1985).
Assessment of motor function and functional abilities confidence level were carried out once with the Modified Motor Assessment Scale
(MMAS) and Functional Ability Confidence Scale (FCAS) respectively.
