Measurements in neurological rehabilitation. Yale University Press, As the description of these analyses was rather complex, we decided to present the data as such, for clarity. These values showed a higher association with changes in ODSS: Thank You We have submitted your request – we will update you on status within the next 24 hours. During these investigations, we questioned whether the ODSS, an instrument applied by clinicians, would have the best correlation with patients’ own judgement of their clinical condition, when compared with other disability scales.
