Abstract

The Barthel Index (BI) is the most commonly used scale for assessing impairment of activities of daily living (ADL). For a global view of patients' abilities and the care needed in everyday neurorehabilitation practice, additional information about basic psychological and cognitive functions is essential. We therefore designed a new disability scale com prised of assessments of consciousness, approachability, orientation, memory, behaviour, emotions, communication, problem solving, perception, a nd behaviour at night. The scale shows exactly the same inner structure as the BI, with ten items and a score of up to 20 in steps from 0-100% (or 0-20 points). By a carefulweighing of the items,the final score of the neuromental index (NMI) should create a clearer picture of both the disabilities and the needed resources. A second aim was to cover a broad range of patients including those in coma and coma remission states and those with only slight neuropsychologicalor behavioural symptoms. The NMI was examined with a group of 179 neurorehabilitation inpatients and proved to be highly valid, reliable, and practicable. It was designed to enable a global assessment of disability as well as the care resources needed, even in patients with different disability levels in ADL and psychological I and cognitive functions.
