From: The Shoulder Function Index (SFInX): evaluation of its measurement properties in people recovering from a proximal humeral fracture

  Recruitment (n = 92) 6 week follow up (n = 81) difference in pointsa Effect size (Cohen’s d) Paired t-test

  1. aData from n=81 of whom data from two assessments were available, was used to calculate the difference in points and effect sizes, and used to perform the paired t-test
