ALS Functional Rating Scale – Revised is a rating scale used by doctors to assess progression and severity of MND. Twelve questions about specific motor functions such as dressing, eating, walking etc are scored by the patient with 0 meaning no function and 4 meaning full function.
The MND Association’s vision is a world free from MND. Realising this vision means investing more in research, further developing partnerships with the research community, funding bodies and industry, while ensuring that advances in understanding and treating MND are communicated as quickly and effectively as possible. Our Research Development team, composed of 11 members, work hard to achieve this. Principally, the Research Information team within this are involved in communication activities including this MND Research blog.
