Composite Cerebellar Functional Severity Score Board
Pr Alexandra DURR, neurogeneticist, and Dr Sophie TEZENAS du MONTCEL, public health doctor, both working in the Salpêtrière University Hospital, in collaboration with the ICM LivingLab and FabLad (at the Brain and Spine Institute in Paris), have the pleasure to give you access to the online version that has been developed to facilitate manufacture and administration of the Composite Cerebellar Functional Severity Score Board (CCFS Board).
The CCFS score is a quantitative tool to measure cerebellar severity independently from age. It is an assessment in addition to a clinical examination and has demonstrated its usefulness in epidemiological studies, clinical trials, and patient follow-up that only take 5 minutes to be administrated. It was validated in adults and children.
The CCFS is a combination of the time to perform 2 tasks; a 9-hole pegboard and a click test. Both tasks include a series of alternative movements: placing pegs and finger-pointing cycles, adjusted on age. A score is calculated and used as a follow-up measure of cerebellar signs.
By following this link: https://icm-institute.org/en/tutorial-for-making-ccfs-board/ you will find all information, technical explanations and blueprints to build your own CCFS Board. Laser cutter machine is the only technical machine you would need to build your CCFS Board. You can find this kind of machine in your university or city’s FabLab.
TRY IT AND HAVE FUN!
