Fugl-Meyer Upper- Stroke Concurrent Validity Limb (FMUL) Fugl-Meyer Sensorimotor Assessment total score strongly correlated to Motor Assessment Scale; r = .88 (Poole & Whitney, 1988) and r = .96 (Malouin et al., 1994).

Concurrent validity of the ARAT was assessed by comparing the results of the ARAT with that of the motor assessment scale. The motor assessment scale includes eight hierarchical measures largely focused on disability [11].
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].
A commonly used tool to measure motor recovery and functional ability following stroke is the Motor Assessment Scale (MAS) (Carr et al 1985).
