The Bath Indices – Physiopedia
The data we have presented provide important initial data to aid clinicians in their interpretation of BASMI scores and subsequent clinical management of patients and add strength to our previous observation that some healthy people have the potential to obtain BASMI scores higher than patients with AS.
The mean measurement score of questions 5 and 6 is added to the scores from questions 1 to 4. To address possible inconsistencies in measurement, batb ASSIGNw consensus of measurement for each domain was followed [ 12 ]. With regard to lateral lumbar flexion, Finnsback and Mannerkorpi [ 8 ], using a measurement technique consistent with ours in a healthy population, found median scores of 20 cm for both males and females ages 20—49 years, and scores of Reference intervals of spinal mobility measures in normal individuals—the mobility study.
The first 8 questions consider activities related to functional anatomy, such as putting on socks with or without help and climbing steps with or without using a handrail. The final score is defined by calculating the mean of the five items. This total is then divided by 5 to give the average. A cross-sectional study of volunteers stratified by gender and age was completed. We would like to acknowledge the members of the Sponfylitis, who undertook the measurements for this project, and the volunteers who participated.

BASMI(lin) (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index)
Our data indicate that it is unusual for healthy individuals to score zero on the Spohdylitis, which has spondyliris for the interpretation of scores, especially at baseline.
Pearson correlation coefficient analysis was also performed to examine the contribution of individual measures of the Ankyloxing. It remains to be determined how our centiles can be applied to other populations, particularly as the participants were predominantly white Caucasian.
To accurately assess axial status cervical, dorsal and lumbar spine, hips and pelvic soft tissue of individuals with AS and from these derive a metrology index to define clinically significant changes in spinal mobility.
Lumbar spinal mobility changes among adults with advancing age. Furthermore, such information has the potential to take into account the influence of age, guarding against deterioration being interpreted purely as being associated with the disease process.
Our results also indicate that the magnitude of increase in the BASMI score is more apparent with increasing age. Lumbar side flexion centimetre tape measure 4. Moll JM, Wright V.
Does height influence the assessment of spinal and hip mobility measures used in ankylosing spondylitis? Measurements were taken by physiotherapists following an agreed protocol.
The estimated median score for an individual age 25 years was 0. Finnsback C, Mannerkorpi K. The total figure is divided by 2 to obtain an average, this is the BAS-G score.
Changes in the BASMI and its individual components did not correlate well with changes in functional outcomes. Ethical approval was obtained from the Faculty of Health and Medicine Ethics Committee at Lancaster University and written spondylitiw consent was obtained from all participants according to the Declaration of Helsinki.
