Madrid Quantitative Neuromuscular Assessment (MAQUINA)
Availability
Please email the author for information about obtaining the instrument: jmora.hciii@salud.madrid.org
Classification
Exploratory: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Short Description of Instrument

The Original MAQUINA was designed and proved consistent and reliable to quantify motor deficits in ALS patients (PAS). It was composed of 2 timed tests of bulbar function (PaTaka, Count), 5 tests of arm function (Marbles R&L, Pedaling, Tapping R&L), and 4 tests of leg function (Up&3mWalk, Pedaling, Tapping R&L).

Scoring

The final global score is the plain sum of the selected tests divided by the number of tests taken.
