An adult motor assessment adapted from a test you trust

The Bruininks Motor Ability Test (BMAT) is an individually administered, standardised test of gross and fine motor skills for adults 40 and older. It’s an adaptation of the trusted BOT™-2. The BMAT is ideal for professionals in occupational therapy and physiotherapy, nursing, human performance, and physical rehabilitation to determine if clients’ motor function issues need to be addressed before they can live independently.

The BMAT also helps you set treatment goals and monitor progress. What’s more, you can repeat administrations over the course of treatment and adjust goals as needed.

Also available in digital format via Q global® 


Comprehensive, stand-alone subtests

For maximum flexibility, you can administer all the subtests or focus on one or two specific motor skill areas. That’s because each subtest has the content, reliability, validity, and sensitivity to stand on its own,

Subtests include:

  • Fine Motor Integration
  • Manual Dexterity
  • Co-ordination
  • Balance and Mobility
  • Strength and Flexibility

Each subtest can be administered in as little as 15minutes and you receive three score composites:  Fine Motor, Gross Motor, and Total Motor. Also included is the Short Form that offers a quick measure of overall motor ability in just 20 minutes.

A built-in dashboard makes administration easy The Administration Easel provides an at-a-glance dashboard with a detailed description of how to administer and score each item. Included are verbatim instructions and illustrative photos for the examiner and examinee.
