  1. Abbreviations: M/F (male/female), L/R/A (left/right/ambidextrous), FIM (Functional Independence Measure), CMSA (Chedoke-McMaster Stroke Assessment scale) Legend: amedian (min-max); bFIM consists of 18 items scored from 1 to 7, higher scores representing greater functional independence csubset of FIM with 13 items. d[n1 n2 n3 n4 n5 n6 n7] corresponds to the number of subjects with CMSA arm scores of [1 2 3 4 5 6 7]. A higher score represents lower physical impairment.
