It includes 15 items related to bed mobility, transfers, walking, stair use, and running. The RMI is a unidimensional mobility scale meaning that it has minimal cognitive demands, that is, subjects are not required to interpret, remember, or understand complex or multiple instructions. The more challenging RMI items are more difficult because they require greater physical abilities, while cognitive and social capacity has little impact on performance. Since the RMI is unidimensional, it does not measure community mobility or the community integration aspect of mobility. Skip to main content Skip to table of contents.

Modified Rivermead Mobility Index: A Reliable Measure in People Within 14 Days Post-Stroke

Modified Rivermead Mobility Index, muscle strength manual muscle test , muscle tone Modified Ashworth Scale , range of motion of lower extremity, sensory function light touch and proprioception tests , and coordination heel to shin and lower-extremity motor coordination tests were assessed. In addition, stepwise linear regression analysis revealed that coordination heel to shin test was the explanatory variable closely associated with mobility in stroke patients. Coordination heel to shin test was closely related to mobility function. These results may be useful in developing rehabilitation programs for stroke patients. Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide 1. Stroke patients experience muscle weakness and sensory changes, resulting in functional disorders, such as difficulties in trunk control, balance instability, and gait dysfunction, in addition to difficulties performing activities of daily living 2.
