In order to evaluate the functional levels of 133 disabled patients, the modified Barthel index and the adapted PULSES profile were applied at admission, discharge and follow-up, respectively. Theses methods of evaluation were valuable in monitoring rehabilitation progress over a span of time, as well as in describing individual and group progress in rehabilitation. Various correlational analyses between these evaluation scores and patients age, economic bracket, hospital stay and education level were done.

The major results were as follows: The older the patient, the higher the PULSES profile P score at admission, discharge and follow-up. And there was a tendency for the lower the Barthel score and the higher the PULSES score to have a great number of total hospital days. During admission, the Barthel score and number of hospital days both increased in cases of paraplegia who were in a higher economic bracket. The Barthel and PULSES scores changed significantly during hospital stay in hemiplegic patients with a higher education level regardless of side of involvement.
