This paper is intended to provide a practical overview for clinicians and researchers
involved in assessing upper limb function. It considers 25 upper limb assessments used
in musculoskeletal care and presents a simple, straightforward comparative review of
each. The World Health Organization International Classifi cation on Functioning,
Disability and Health (WHO ICF) is used to provide a relative summary of purpose
between each assessment. Measurement properties of each assessment are provided,
considering the type of data generated, availability of reliability estimates and normative
data for the assessment.
