Abstract

Background: Need for the study is to facilitate the selection and use of assessment tools in daily clinical practice and encourage the development of new and improved outcome instruments for the UE in children with CP that may further be useful in treatment purpose. Methodology: Articles on hand assessment measures in children with cerebral palsy were selected from an online electronic database. All the articles were reviewed and compared the basis of their reliability, time required, characteristics of the measure. Results: , SHUEE and Melbourne hand assessment scale has greater reliability and appropriate characteristics of measures compared to other scales. But these measures are time-consuming and costly. Conclusion: - QUEST, SHUEE and Melbourne hand assessment scale proved to be better reliability and appropriate characteristics of measures compared to other scales.
