Thus, tablets, like clinical ratings, have ceiling and floor effects at the extremes of tremor amplitude. The adjacent link to “The Lundbeck Institute” includes descriptions of and references to central scales used in psychiatry and neurology as well as an introduction to the topic of rating scales.

By contrast, the baseline FTM and tablet means were statistically identical on days 2 and 3 mean FTM spiral ratings, 0. There is no published evidence that the Bain and Findley 0—10 ratings are more sensitive to change than FTM 0—4 ratings.

Archives msrin General Psychiatry, 4, fahn tolosa marin tremor rating scale However, the FTM ICC probably would have been lower if different raters had been used to assess the two baselines because intra-rater reliability is much better than inter-rater reliability for tremor rating scales.

The drawings were simultaneously digitized with a digitizing tablet. Quantification of tremor with a digitizing tablet. In this, study, baseline 1 refers to the baseline data from study day 2, and baseline 2 refers to the data from study tremkr 3. Thus there is no individual or agency that takes responsibility for the results obtained with this test or this form.

Our results need to be confirmed using baseline assessments at intervals of 1 week and 1 month, which are common intervals of assessment in clinical trials. They also cannot record tremor that is so severe that the pen tip does not remain within 1 cm of the tablet surface.
