Activities
modified Rankin ScaleThe modified Rankin scale (mRS) is a standardized measure that describes the extent of disability after a stroke. It ranges from 0 = no symptoms to 6 = death due to stroke [8, 34].

Barthel IndexThe Barthel Index is an ordinal scale that accounts for the patient’s autonomy and need for care. It covers essential activities of daily living and ranges from 0 (total dependency) to 100 (independent) [37, 28].
Fatigue scale for motor function and cognitionFatigue scale for motor and cognitive functions, an assessment of fatigue, containing two subscales (mental and physical fatigue), ranging from 20 = no fatigue at all to 100 = severest grade of fatigue [31].
ICHOM-QuestionnaireA standard Set of Patient-reported Outcome Measurements for stroke from The International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurements including the PROMIS-10 [35].
AUDIT CThe Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) alcohol consumption questions. A Screening Test for Problem Drinking [9].
