The incidence of stoke is strongly increasing and the stroke is the most frequent cause of disability in the elderly. However, the little information is available concerning the details of recovery in the first weeks after stroke. The predictions as to whether a patient will recover after stroke is very important to patient, family and physician.

To predict the outcome of stroke patient, we performed multiple regression analysis of 6 variables, measured in the beginning of rehabilitation, on 153 patients. The variables were gender, age, proprioception, motor assessment scale(MAS), visual perception score, and initial Barthel index score.

The gender, age, proprioception had no significant effect upon functional outcome in 1 month after stroke. The MAS, visual perception score, initial Barthel index score were correlated with functional outcome, and the equation of these was 17.38+0.81 MAS+0.22 Visual perception score+0.25 Initial Barthel index score.

Key Words: Stroke, Functional outcome, Multiple regression analysis
