ADL
« on: September 25, 2004, 05:20:47 PM »
Hi,

Help. What does ADL stand for? That is the only thing I can't understand on my report..... In a sentance my OS uses it as : "fortunately improved ADL and sense of strength would allow this as an option"

Thanks

In Dutch it is Activiteiten in het Dagelijks Leven, so I thought in English it might be something similiar (sp?), and it is!

Hope this helps, it's too much to easily explain for me (in English ;D) so read the link!
