- Test results appear easy to interpret.
- Norms for general population according to age, sex and hand (dominant or non-dominant) are available with the instruction manual.
- Slow times reflect a less desirable performance.
- No normative or published data has been reported for the SCI population.
MCID: not established in SCI
SEM: not established in SCI
MDC: not established in SCI
Test-retest reliability for the items ranged from Moderate to High (ranged from r = 0.60-0.99 (Pearson’s product-moment correlation)).
(Jebsen et al. 1969)
Correlation of the Jebsen Hand Function test is High with the overall Klein-Bell Scale score (Spearman’s r = -0.635) and Klein-Bell Scale–dressing subscale (Spearman’s r = -0.69), and Moderate with Klein-Bell Scale-bathing/hygiene subscale (-0.57) and Klein-Bell Scale-Eating subscale (-0.45).
(Lynch & Bridle 1989)
No values have been reported for the responsiveness of the Jebsen Hand Function Test for the SCI population at this time.
No values were reported for the presence of floor/ceiling effects in the Jebsen Hand Function Test for the SCI population at this time.
