  1. The disability rating index : an instrument for the assessment of disability in clinical settings.

    Article - En anglais

    The purpose of this study was to evaluate an instrument for assessment of physical disability, mainly intended for clinical settings, the Disability Rating Index (DRI).

    Healthy persons (n=1092), both white and blue collar workers, and patients (n=366) with different levels of physical capacity, were assessed.

    Most of the patients (n=303) underwent rehabilitation programmes for neck/shoulder/low-back pain but some (n=47) were arthritis patients waiting for hip or knee replacement surgery, or wheelchair patients with multiple sclerosis (n=16).

    The reliability was investigated by test-retest studies, intra-and inter-rater and internal consistency studies.
