,

[< Latin; compare twi-]
usage: Most words referring to periods of time and prefixed by bi- are potentially ambiguous. Since bi- can be taken to mean either “twice each” or “every two,” a word like biweekly can be understood as “twice each week” or “every two weeks.” Confusion is often avoided by using the prefix semi- meaning “twice each” (semiweekly; semimonthly; semiannual) or by using the appropriate phrases: twice a week; twice each month; every two months; every two years.

Table-IV: Comparison of NIHSS, MRS and Barthel index scores between the 2 groups before and after treatment.
When evaluating the power analysis, the Barthel Index results, the study's one of the most basic hypothesis, were used.
(17) Barthel Index is widely used and has a good reliability with a Cronbach's [alpha] of .96.
Finally, the present results have to be cautiously evaluated since patients who dropped out had longer ICU stays, lower education, lower Barthel index, and more often chronic kidney disease, which may have led to an underestimation of depression.

On the other hand, regarding the comparisons between GDS and generic measurement instrument (Barthel Index and SF-36), the correlation coefficient varied from -0.320 to -0.217, showing a weak correlation.
Furthermore, the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was used to investigate the relationship between tongue retroflexibility and NIHSS and Barthel Index. p value < 0.05 was considered statistically significant.
As a main result, initial (functional) impairment, age, time between injury and admission, and total T3 serum level proved to be significant predictors for functional gains, as measured with the Early Rehabilitation Barthel Index (ERBI).
During central nervous system examination, patient's disability status was scored according to Barthel Index.
Socioeconomic data were obtained from medical records, other health conditions were recorded, the mobility status of each resident was described using the Barthel Index, and cognitive capacity was determined using the Pfeiffer Test.
