  1. To generate predicted values based on this regression model: e.g. for a patient with mRS 3 who is dependent on daily help from others, has average tenacity (=TGP score 31.3), and high flexibility (=FGA score 44.6): utility value = 1-exp(−1.4004 + 0.9596 + 0.2298–0.0010*31.3–0.0096*44.6) = 0.488
