Self-reported outcomes provide unique insights about an individual's perceived manual ability after stroke. This study aimed at determining how the relationship between objective kinematic variables obtained from the target-to-target pointing task and self-reported manual ability varies during the first year in individuals after stroke. Sixty-six individuals from the Stroke Arm Longitudinal study at the University of Gothenburg (SALGOT) cohort were assessed using ABILHAND questionnaire and kinematic analysis at five timepoints between the 10th day and 12th month after stroke. Kinematic analysis was performed using a target-to-target pointing task in a virtual environment. Spearman's correlation was used to determine the extent of correlation between ABILHAND logits and kinematic variables. The correlations varied with time within the first year after stroke. The correlations were low or very low early after stroke and became moderate to high after 6 months for objective measures of movement time and smoothness, but remained low to moderate for mean velocity and low for peak velocity. Due to this discrepancy between self-perceived and objective assessments of arm function, a combination of self-reported and objective assessments of upper limb should be used as outcome measures, especially in the acute and subacute stages after stroke.
