The spasticity-related quality of life tool (SQoL-6D)
Spasticity is a condition in which certain muscles are continuously contracted. The resulting stiffness and tightness of muscles may affect your ability to move one or more of your limbs. Sometimes spasticity is so severe that it gets in the way of daily activities, sleep patterns, and caregiving.
Common unwanted effects of spasticity are:
Spasms or involuntary movements
Contracture and deformity
Decreased functional abilities
Difficulties with care, hygiene, dressing etc
The SQoL-6D is a brief questionnaire in six domains, designed to assess quality of life in relation to spasticity.
