Stop using the Ashworth Scale for the assessment of spasticity

Abstract : Many studies have been performed upon the methodological qualities of the (modified) Ashworth Scale, but overall these studies seem insufficiently conclusive. Aim of this study is to investigate the construct validity and inter-rater reliability of the Ashworth Scale (AS) for the assessment of spasticity in upper and lower extremities.
