Sorts Package - Self-Report of Functional Ability Kit

$ 675.00

Everything you need to quantify and document reported functional capacity easily

The Self-Report of Functional Ability Kit comprises the Hand Function Sort Kit, the Spinal Function Sort Kit, and the new paper and pencil version of the Multidimensional Task Ability Profile Kit. All three assessments are used as self-reports of perceived ability in the Functional Capacity Evaluation. Comparing clients’ perceived ability to perform activities of daily living and physical demands to their measured abilities is important to target, as these tests can be further extrapolated to look at full or less than full effort during the FCE.

Each of these assessments is designed to be quickly administered, with no additional equipment needed. The test booklets provide both a pictorial description of the task as well as a brief written explanation, which allows the client to more easily interpret what the specific activity being referred to entails. These assessments are designed to be easily scored by hand, and provide a percentile ranking based on normative data for healthy individuals and a “Rating of Perceived Capacity” which can be cross-referenced to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Physical Demand Characteristic of Work.

By having all three assessments available the professional can gear the evaluation to the client’s specific impairment, as outlined below:

  • Hand Function Sort: Hand and Upper Extremity Impairments; fine motor coordination, hand dexterity, bimanual handling, fingering, sensing with the hands and fingers, and reaching
  • Spinal Function Sort: Spine and Lower Extremity Impairments; sitting, standing, walking, climbing, lifting, carrying, pushing and pulling
  • Multidimensional Task Ability Profile: A global test of physical capacity that correlates to general activities of daily living and the physical demands of work

Includes

Hand Function Sort Kit

  • 2 test booklets with 62 drawings selected by experts in rehabilitation from hundreds of tasks that persons with upper extremity impairments report present significant challenges. Each is accompanied by a simple task description.
  • 1 examiner’s manual with instructions, reliability studies, and normative data
  • 100 response sheets (2 score pads, 50 sheets each) with Department of Labor Physical Demand Characteristic chart

Spinal Function Sort Kit

  • 2 test booklets with 50 drawings selected by experts in rehabilitation from hundreds of tasks that persons with spine and lower extremity impairments report present significant challenges. Each drawing is accompanied by a simple task description.
  • 1 examiner’s manual with instructions, reliability studies, and normative data
  • 100 response sheets (2 score pads, 50 sheets each) with Department of Labor Physical Demand Characteristic chart

Multidimensional Task Ability Profile Kit

  • 2 test booklets with 50 drawings accompanied by a simple task description
  • 1 examiner’s manual with instructions, reliability studies, and normative data
  • 100 response sheets with Department of Labor PDC and MTAP normative data crosswalk

Features and Benefits

  • Quantify ability to perform work tasks that involve the hands and upper extremities, spine and lower extremities, activities of daily living and work capacity with very little effort or expense
  • Provides a baseline measure of function in everyday tasks
  • Compares the job applicant’s current abilities to job demands and sets a baseline of abilities
  • Paper and pencil test — no equipment required
  • Easily scored by hand
  • Practical outcome tool for use in small clinical settings
  • Reliable, with several peer-reviewed scientific publications
  • A good educational tool with an emphasis of physical function to help de-emphasize a focus on pain in work hardening and work conditioning programs.
  • Assists with justification of medical necessity for treatment/rehab by providing a quantified baseline, progress, or plateau of physical function
