- The Spinal Cord Ability Ruler provides clinician-administered interval scale to measure volitional performance after SCI. Specifically, it measures voluntary physical movements that contribute to independence in daily living including self-care, transfer and mobility items.
- The SCAR uses a combination of existent spinal cord injury measures and is administered by a clinician. Items were selected and adjusted from the ISNCSCI and SCIM, allowing for good measurement properties and a validated linear interval-level measure with repeatable precision across a broad range of SCI levels and severities.
- The SCAR changes the scoring options for the various SCIM items so that there are less scale numbers, making it easier for the patient to differentiate from the various scoring options.
