CUE-T: Capabilities of Upper Extremity Test

The CUE-T 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 manual and directions on its use are provided here.
