 No reports have been published summarizing participation measures in Japan. The aim of this study was to identify and clarify the participation measuring tools used in Japanese clinical studies. To survey the features of frequently used participation measures, we identified the ICF Activities and Participation domains, and criticized the psychometric properties of the identified participation measures. We identified 27 different participation measures. The 6 most frequently used measures were the Occupational self-assessment (OSAII), own surveys, the multidimensional 13-item index of competence (TMIG), the MOS 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36v2), the Model of human occupation screening tool (MOHOST), and ICF. This review revealed the variety, features, problems and issues related to participation measures in Japan, and thus aimed to inform the selection of the most appropriate participation measures.
