- Clinical impairment measure that incorporates three domains vital to upper limb function: sensation, strength, and prehension.
- Multimodal test comprising 5 subtests for each upper limb: dorsal sensation, palmar sensation, strength, prehension ability and prehension performance.
- Results in 5 numerical scores that provide a comprehensive profile of upper-limb function.
Authors recommend that a partial GRASSP (sensibility, strength, tone and qualitative prehension) be administered prior to 3-4 weeks post-injury as it is unlikely that the patient will tolerate enough sitting (45 min) for the quantitative grasp portion of the test.
