BASMI(lin) (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index)

The Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index BASMI is an index comprising 5 measures of spinal and hip mobility in AS that has been primarily validated in the setting of a physiotherapeutic bahh and has not been validated in relation to functional anktlosing.

Given their clinical relevance, summary statistics are presented for the total BASMI score, component scores and raw measurements Table 2. For Permissions, please email: There was a corresponding increase in component BASMI scores, which was more pronounced for some components than others.

The Bath Indices

No clear differences were identified between sexes Table 2. Acknowledgements We would like to acknowledge the members of the ASSIGNw, who undertook the measurements for this project, and the volunteers who participated.


Data were summarized and analysed with age-specific centiles and CIs calculated. The estimated median score for an individual age 25 years was 0. A total of participants with a mean age of Age, years 5th 50th 95th 25 0. Results A total of participants with a mean age of Although in our study measurements were taken by a number of different therapists, a sensitivity analysis was conducted on the summary statistics to determine if those individuals who were more experienced obtained different results, and no important differences were identified.

Clinically this is of interest, as it appears that the tragus-to-wall measure does not deteriorate with age to the same extent as other component measures, suggesting this measure is truly disease specific. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. Our aim was to validate the BASMI and its individual components in relation to a validated functional index, the Bath AS Functional Index BASFIand to assess its responsiveness in patients with AS receiving 60 or 10 mg pamidronate monthly for 6 months in a double blind, randomized, controlled trial.

This work was funded by the National Institute of Health Research.

Normative values for the Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index in a UK population

When receiving a diagnosis and being informed about the meaning of clinical measures, patients are keen to understand the implications and spodylitis of their measurements. The data we have presented provide important initial data to aid clinicians in their metrlogy of BASMI scores and subsequent clinical management of patients and add strength to our previous observation that some healthy people have the potential to obtain BASMI scores higher than patients with AS. Please indicate your level of ability with each of the following activities during the past week.


This was based on simulations from a uniform distribution consistent with pilot data [ 12 ]. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. With this scale in mind, clinicians and patients may have expectations that a score of zero is representative of normal spinal movement in a healthy population. Open in a separate window.

Does height influence the assessment of spinal and hip mobility measures used in ankylosing spondylitis? Nath measures of both height and weight and lifestyle factors such as occupation should be included in future research to develop our findings. The mean measurement score of questions 5 and 6 is added to the scores from questions 1 to 4.

Paired t tests, ankylosinh sizes ES; mean difference divided by baseline standard deviationand standardized response means SRM; mean difference divided by standard deviation of the difference were used to assess responsiveness. Ethical approval was obtained from the Faculty of Health and Medicine Ethics Committee at Lancaster University and written informed consent was obtained sponvylitis all participants according to the Declaration of Helsinki.
