Reliability and validity of the shortened Singapore versions of the Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity Inventory
Upper limb deficits are common sequelae after a stroke and negatively affect daily living and quality of life. The use of outcome measures to evaluate upper limb function is essential to assess sensorimotor recovery and to determine the effectiveness of rehabilitation. The aim of this study was to estimate the construct validity and inter-rater reliability of three shortened versions of the Singapore version of the Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity Inventory (CAHAI-SG) comprising seven, eight, and nine test items. The sample consisted of 55 inpatients with acute/subacute stroke to whom the CAHAI-SG, Fugl-Meyer Assessment of Up...

Cross-cultural adaptation and psychometric evaluation of the Singapore version of the Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity.
CONCLUSION: The Singapore version of the CAHAI demonstrated good validity and reliability, similar to the properties of the original CAHAI. Implications for rehabilitation The Singapore version of the Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity Inventory demonstrates evidence of construct validity and inter-rater reliability. The Singapore version of the Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity Inventory can be used by clinicians and researchers to evaluate function in the affected upper extremity for persons with stroke in Singapore.

Therapists' perspectives on adapting the Stepping On falls prevention programme for community-dwelling stroke survivors in Singapore.
CONCLUSIONS: Rehabilitation therapists describe challenges in addressing fall prevention within a stroke context, and findings highlight the need for a structured, stroke-specific fall prevention programme rather than a more general approach to education and training. Contextual components identified provide valuable inputs towards the development of a culturally relevant fall prevention programme for stroke survivors in Singapore. Implications for Rehabilitation Stroke survivors living in the community are at a high risk of falls. A structured and culturally relevant fall prevention programme for community-living stroke s...

Developing a falls prevention program for community-dwelling stroke survivors in Singapore: client and caregiver perspectives.
CONCLUSIONS: Reducing the risk of falls in community-dwelling stroke survivors seems to be more important than promoting community participation among caregivers. The study findings highlight that a structured and client-centered fall prevention program targeting stroke survivors and caregivers is needed in Singapore. Implications for rehabilitation Falls after stroke can lead to functional decline in gait and mobility and restricted self-care activities. Community-dwelling stroke survivors develop adaptive safety strategies after a fall and want to be socially connected. However, caregivers see the safety of the stroke su...

Commentary on ‚ÄúRehabilitation Outcomes Associated With Foreign Domestic Workers as Caregivers‚ÄĚ
The purpose of this commentary is to illuminate the role of foreign domestic workers (FDW) as caregivers for patients undergoing rehabilitation in Asia. The authors of a published study in this issue of the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation investigate the association between the characteristics of caregivers for patients recovering from sub-acute stroke and the rehabilitation outcomes of those patients in Singapore. The investigators examined over 4,000 caregivers and one of the findings showed that after controlling for characteristics of both caregivers and patients, there was a significant and negative a...
