Table 1 Assessments used in the study reflecting the component body structure of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health

From: Protocol for a multicenter observational prospective study of functional recovery from stroke beyond inpatient rehabilitation - The Interdisciplinary Platform for Rehabilitation Research and Innovative Care of Stroke Patients (IMPROVE)

Body structure
National Institutes of Health Stroke ScaleThe National Institute of Health Stroke Scale is a score system to quantify the impairment caused by a stroke. The sum of the values from the investigations results in a maximum of 42 points. The higher the score, the more extensive the stroke [7].
Fugl-Meyer Assessment (upper extremity)The section motor function of upper limb is one of five domains, a three-point scale is used for rating performance as 0 = cannot perform, 1 = performs partially and 2 = performs fully, maximal possible score: 66 points [15].
Grip and pinch strengthA dynamometer is used to measure grip strength and a pinch gauge to measure pinch force.
Montreal Cognitive AssessmentThe Montreal Cognitive Assessment is a screening assessment for detecting cognitive impairment, a maximum of 30 points (no restrictions) can be achieved [30].
Line Bisection TestThe line bisection test is a test to detect the presence of unilateral spatial neglect. To complete the test, the middle of several horizontal lines is estimated and marked [1, 2].
Bells TestThe Bells test is a cancellation task used for quantitative and qualitative evaluation of visual neglect. Patients are asked to find bells that are distributed pseudo-randomly among distractive stimuli [16].
Aphasia TestStandardized test for differential diagnosis Aphasia - no aphasia [26].
Apraxia Screen of TULIAThe Apraxia Screen from TULIA is a short assessment to diagnose apraxia with 12 hand movements, dichotomous scale: 0 = not fulfilled, 1 = fulfilled motion task based on the comprehensive standardized Test for Upper-Limp Apraxia (TULIA) [42].
ASKU self-efficacy short formA 3-items scale for the measurement of self-efficacy [4].
