Four short, simple measures of arm function, suitable for use with patients recovering from acute stroke, are described.

Good interobserver and test-retest reliability was demonstrated for all tests, and the Frenchay Arm Test was shown to be valid. Normal values for all tests were established on 63 controls.

Recovery of arm function has been studied in a sample of 56 patients seen regularly over the first 3 months after their stroke, using these standard measures. The results demonstrated a wide variation in recovery curves between patients. The use of the Nine Hole Peg Test enabled further recovery to be detected after patients achieved a top score on the Frenchay Arm Test.

Failure to recover measureable grip strength before 24 days was associated with absence of useful arm function at three months. Measurement of finger tapping rate was not useful.

The FAI can be used as a mailed questionnaire. Can also be used with patients with cognitive impairment, using a proxy respondent. The focus of the FAI is on frequency of activity rather than quality of activity.
