Abstract

[Purpose] The study was conducted to examine the reliability of the Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments test. [Subjects] Subjects were 36 stroke patients. [Methods] Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments were measured. The reliability was determined based on Spearman's rankcorrelation and Cohen's kappa coefficient scores. [Results] Whereas the reliability of the SWM test was high on the paralyzed side (r s =0.86, κ=0.71-0.79), it was low on the other side without paralysis
