CUE-Q: Capabilities of Upper Extremity Questionnaire

The CUE-Q is a measure of functional limitation in tetraplegia. Utilization of the measure is encouraged, but to ensure the reliability and validity of studies which use the tool, we require that the measure not be altered.

To facilitate its use, a copy of the instrument and directions on its use is provided here in the form of Adobe Acrobat pdf documents.

The CUE-Q form and directions version 2.1_2017 (129 kb) is available for download, subject to your acceptance of its terms of use.

A selected bibliography related to the CUE-Q appear below.
