Development of the ACTIVLIM scale using the Rasch measurement model

The ACTIVLIM questionnaire has been calibrated in children and adults with neuromuscular disorders (Vandervelde et al. 2007) according the difficulty of patients in performing daily activities as perceived by the parents of the affected children or by the adult patients themselves.

This scale can be used for patients from 6 till 80 years of age in such a way that the evolution of the disease course can be followed from the childhood to the adulthood.

The original version of ACTIVLIM was developed in French and Dutch. However, an English version is also available (see downloads section).

The questionnaire was originally developed using the Rasch measurement model which allows to convert ordinal scores into linear measures located on a unidimensional scale.
