Validation of Rehab Assessments in Myositis Patients
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Other
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Validation of Manual Muscle Testing and the Myositis Activity Profile Assessments in Patients With Inflammatory Myositis|
- Manual Muscle Testing 8 (MMT8) [ Time Frame: 15 minutes ]The strength of 8 Muscle groups is tested in a defined position and rewarded with a score varying from 0 (No visible movement) to 10 (holds test position against strong pressure) and summed for a potential score from 0-80.
- Quantitative Muscle Testing [ Time Frame: 15 Minutes ]Hand Held Dynamometer in Newton
- Functional Index 2 [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ]Evaluates muscle endurance of the upper & lower extremity and neck flexors movements: amount of repetitions.
- Functional Test Battery (FTB): Test 1 Self-Performed Physical Performance Test. [ Time Frame: Total FTB: 1 1/4 hours ]Time in seconds to get up and sit down 5 times from a chair.
- Functional Test Battery (FTB): Balance Test [ Time Frame: Total FTB: 1 1/4 hours ]Time in seconds (max 10 sec.) 1) balance feet together, 2) semi-tandem, 3) full-tandem stand.
- Functional Test Battery ( FTB): Walk test ( 4 m) [ Time Frame: Total FTB: 1 1/4 hours ]Time in sec.
- Functional Test Battery ( FTB): 1 leg stand [ Time Frame: Total FTB: 1 1/4 hours ]Time in sec.
- Functional Test Battery ( FTB): Grip ability Test [ Time Frame: Total FTB: 1 1/4 hours ]Time in sec. (max 60 sec.)
- Functional Test Battery ( FTB): Jamar grip test [ Time Frame: Total FTB: 1 1/4 hours ]Strength in Kg.
- Functional Test Battery ( FTB): Pile Test [ Time Frame: Total FTB: 1 1/4 hours ]Work = Joule & Performance = Watt
- Functional Test Battery ( FTB): 6 Minute walk-test [ Time Frame: Total FTB: 1 1/4 hours ]Meters during 6 minutes
- Modified Myositis Activity Profile [ Time Frame: 30 Minutes ]34 item Questionnaire

Device: Non intervention study
This study evaluates the validity and reliability of two health related instruments that assess disease relevant functions and disabilities in patients with IM: the manual muscle testing 8 (MMT8) and the myositis activity profile (MAP). This study is needed to determine the psychometric properties of these two assessments. Provided that both the MMT8 and the MAP show good psychometric properties, these assessments could be used in the rehabilitation process and intervention programs of patients with IM to determine progress in muscle strength and activity in daily life.
Methodology: Reliability (Test re-test study and validity (cross sectional study) of a short form of MMT 8 and a questionnaire to assess difficulties in activities of daily life (MAP) in myositis patients.
