Arm and Hand Function (2)
This short questionnaire is being done to supplement and extend a previous survey on the issue of upper limb (arm and hand) function in people with MS.
Should MSers in wheelchairs be excluded from progressive trials?
Compared to lower limb function (walking) how important is upper limb function?
Upper limb function includes multiple tasks, for example transferring yourself from a wheelchair, dressing yourself, cleaning your teeth, eating, propelling your wheelchair, turning the pages of a book, using a keyboard, making a telephone call, sending a text message, accessing a remote control, brushing your hair, taking your medication, catheterising yourself, etc.
Upper limb function is unimportant compared to walking
Upper limb function is critically important (more important than walking in terms of staying independent)
