Modified Rankin Scale for Neurologic Disability
Please fill out required fields.
Decisions about further medical management, the need for PT/OT therapy and the degree of care that a patient requires can be partially informed by the mRS, but final determinations should be made on an individual basis.
The mRS is used to evaluate the degree of disability in patients who have suffered a stroke, but individual quality of life and independence are influenced by a wide variety of factors including the presence of comorbidities and socioeconomic status.
The use of a structured interview may lead to increased reliability among those conducting assessments using the mRS.
