  1. * LFA List of Functional Abilities, N number of insurance physicians, n number of insurance physicians who filled in disabilities for (the scale of) the LFA, sd standard deviation. The difference of the mean sum scores over the four LFA scales between control group (CG) and intervention group (IG) is not significant for case report 1 (p = 0.229), but is significant for case report 2 (p = 0.013).
