- •SOFEMER Activity Score (SAS) is devised to quantify patient activity limitation in rehabilitation centers.
- •SAS content validity and feasibility have been already established.
- •The SAS interrater reliability is assessed and found “good” to “excellent.”
- •Analyses of score agreements and disagreements helped tuning scoring instructions.
- •The SAS good interrater reliability paves the way for further validation steps.
Main Outcome Measures
