Table 1 Description of techniques added to the target group taking into account subjects’ functional level using Hospital of Sagunto Functional Scales

From: Functional principal component analysis as a new methodology for the analysis of the impact of two rehabilitation protocols in functional recovery after stroke

Functional level Techniques added to the target group
BipHS = 0 (Impossible standing) Plantar stimulation sensitivity*.
CFMHS = 0 (Nonambulation) Pelvic dissociation in supine*.
BipHS = 1 (Nonfunctional standing) Plantar stimulation sensitivity*.
CFMHS = 0 (Nonambulation) Pelvic dissociation in supine*.
  Knee and ankle dissociation in supine**.
BipHS = 2 (Hand-bound or supported standing) Plantar stimulation sensitivity*.
CFMHS = 1 (Nonfunctional ambulation-permanent aid) Pelvic dissociation in supine*.
  Knee and ankle dissociation in supine**.
  Head dissociations: head rotations in standing with support***.
  Balance: non-affected leg movements, in supported standing***.
BipHS = 3 (Free, independent and short standing) Head dissociations: head rotations in standing without support***.
CFMHS = 2 (Household ambulation-on flat and horizontal surfaces)  
  Balance: non-affected leg movements in standing position***.
BipHS = 4 (Prolonged standing but abnormal) Head dissociations: head rotations in standing without support and feet together***.
CFMHS = 2 (Household ambulation-on flat and horizontal surfaces) or 3 (Surroundings of the house ambulation- restricted distance)  
  Balance: non-affected leg movements in standing position, with feet together***.
BipHS = 5 (Normal standing) Head dissociations: head rotations in standing without support, feet together and eyes closed***.
CFMHS = 3 (Surroundings of the house ambulation- restricted distance) or 4 (Independent community ambulation) or 5 (Normal ambulation- distance, appearance)  
  Balance: non-affected leg movements in standing position, with feet together and eyes closed***.
  Balance: standing in balance board with rotation on horizontal axis and then on vertical axis (when subjects feel confident close their eyes)***.
