Measurement tools used in rehabilitation medicine are based on the first World Health Organization's (WHO) International Classification of Impairments, Disability, and Handicap. Since 2001 is approved the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health or ICF. It is not known whereas the old measurement tools are in accordance with the new classification, which is based on the bio-psycho-social model of health. For none of the existing outcome measures there have been done a clinical trial, which would demonstrate that there the ICF codes and measured parameters really match. To introduce ICF into clinical practice and to assess it as tool for: - classification of patients with the ICD10 same diagnosis; - to demonstrate the applicability of WHODAS II for evaluation of impairment and rehabilitation outcome of patient after ICV. 200 patients after stroke (ICV) will be classified on the basis of ICF. They will be also assessed with FIM (Functional Independent Measure), WHODAS II (World Health organization Disability Assessment Schedule II) and SF-36 (Medical Outcome Study Short Form 36). We suppose that there will be good correlation between ICF codes and parameters of different outcome measures. We will find the frequency of different problems in stroke patients on all domains of ICF (body structure and body functions, activities and participation and environmental factors) and demonstrate that there are also problems that cannot be solved without a support of society.
