Rehabilitation of the hand is often necessary for individuals to regain function following events such as a stroke, injury, or surgery . To understand whether function is being restored with rehabilitation, measures of function must be quantified and presented in a manner that shows the current level of progress in comparison with the initial and potential abilities. The model presented in this research represents a unique way to view and interpret functional abilities and limitations of the hand prior to, during, and after rehabilitation.
