- Developed to provide a sensitive global functional scale for measuring gains in individuals with tetraplegia during rehabilitation.
- Items include: wash/dry hair, turn supine to side in bed, lower extremity dressing, open carton/jar, transfer from bed to wheelchair and lock wheelchair. These items were selected from five of the functional performance categories of self-care and mobility on the QIF in order to reduce item redundancies of the original 37-item version.
- The QIF – Short Form is more practical to use than the original QIF as the number of items have been reduced.
- The QIF – Short Form is designed specifically for the quadriplegic SCI population.
