    The Modified Ashworth scale (MAS) measures resistance during passive soft-tissue stretching and is used as a simple measure of spasticity. Scoring (taken from Bohannon and Smith, ): 0: No increase in muscle tone; 1: Slight increase in muscle tone, manifested by a catch and release or by minimal resistance at the end of the range of motion when the affected part(s) is moved in flexion or Purpose: measure of spasticity. Dec 10,  · Abstract. Spasticity is one component of the upper motor neuron (UMN) syndrome resulting from a multitude of neurologic conditions, such as stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and cerebral palsy.

    Spasticity is a muscle control disorder that involves tight or stiff muscles and an inability to control those muscles. Spasticity affects about 80 percent of people with cerebral palsy and can make normal movement, speech and walking difficult. It can also affect people with traumatic brain injury. Mar 25,  · Spasticity is a form of hypertonia due to hyperexcitable tonic stretch reflexes. It is distinguished from rigidity by its dependence upon the speed of the muscle stretch and by the presence of other positive UMN signs. Hyperactive spinal reflexes mediate most of these positive phenomena, while others are due to disordered control of voluntary.
