"Clinimetric evaluation of a new overall disability scale in immune mediated polyneuropathies."
J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 2002;72:596–601.
I➜The INCAT Overall (arm plus leg) Disability Sum Score provides a clinically derived baseline assessment which ranks functional impairment in limbs from 0 (normal) to 5 for the arms and to 7 for the legs.
The simplicity, validity, reliability, and responsiveness of the ODSS is demonstrated in patients with immune mediated polyneuropathies (GuillainBarré syndrome, CIDP, and polyneuropathy associated with a MGUSP).
