Validity and test-retest reliability of a measure of hand sensibility and manual dexterity in people with multiple sclerosis: the ReSense test.

Conclusions: The ReSense is a valid tool developed for testing sensing properties of the hand in PwMS. We believe that the sensitivity and specificity values of this tool will assist the clinician to formulate decisions related to rehabilitation management of his/her patient. Implication for Rehabilitation The ReSense, a valid and reliable tool was developed for testing sensing properties of elements with hand manipulation in the clinic. The ReSense test score was significantly correlated with scores of manual dexterity and traditional sensibility tests. A continuous scale such as the ReSense test may provide clinicians with more precise information relating to hand performance in PwMS than traditional sensory tools.
