Brief Summary:

Motor Function Measure (MFM) is a validated tool assessing the motor function of neuromuscular patients constituted of 32 items. Despite standardized Motor Function Measure (MFM) training sessions, there is still an inter-individual variability in the items' scoring procedure, depending for example on the subjectivity of the therapist.

Among the 32 items of the MFM, 3 currently require the use of a paper, and could be automated by using a digital tablet. It is the item 18 where the patient traces the edge of a Compact Disc, item 19 requiring to draw loops inside a frame and item 22 requiring to place a finger on each standardized cases. The reproducibility of these 3 items could be improved with the use of a digital tablet and the development of a software allowing to computerize the scoring procedure. The second interest is to implement directly the MFM data in the MFM base.

The hypothesis is that the difference of scoring of these 3 items between digital tablet versus paper completion is enough low to use indifferently each completion in patients with a neuromuscular disease.

Intervention Details:
  • Other: Items completion

    Patients will complete his Motor Function Measure in the usual way, except items 18, 19 and 22 which will be completed twice: once using conventional material and once on a digital tablet.

    The order of completion between conventional material or digital tablet will be allocate randomly.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Comparison scoring between items completed using conventional material or on a digital tablet. [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    The comparison of scores between usual test (paper) versus digital tablet test, for the item 18, 19 and 22 of the Motor Function Measure.
