Negligible financial expenditure on test materials is required, with the Motor Assessment Scale subtests and sensation assessment domain requiring the use of common and easily obtained everyday objects, such as pens/ paper, cups, cutlery and a ball (Corben et al.

For example, referring to table 4, it can be seen that patient E5 scored zero on the Motor Assessment Scale advanced hand activities test and had the highest MAS score of three, while patients C1 and C4 scored two on the Motor Assessment Scale advanced hand activities test and had an MAS score of two.

The standard Pearson product-moment correlation was employed to examine the relationship between scores of the ARAT and the upper extremity part of the motor assessment scale, the arm sub-score of the motricity index and the upper extremity movements of the modified motor assessment chart.
The Motor Assessment Scale (MAS) (Carr and Shepherd 1985), used to assess motor function in patients with hemiplegia following stroke, was used to assess and measure progress in activity limitations.
On admission to rehabilitation after stroke, validated measures of activity limitation that focus on or include mobility, such as the Motor Assessment Scale (Carr et al 1985), Functional Independence Measure (Kidd et al 1995), walking speed (Wade et al 1987), and Timed Up and Go Test (Podsiadlo and Richardson 1991) are commonly recorded.
Some proximal UL voluntary activity indicated by a score of 3 or higher on the UL item of the Motor Assessment Scale [14]; the ability to move the wrist and fingers was not required.
Assessment of motor function on the hemiplegic side was made using the Motor Assessment Scale (MAS), an instrument which has demonstrated high inter- and intra-tester reliability [26].
