    This is classic PT/OT-speak for modified assistance and modified independence. You will also see Max and Min, for maximum and minimum.

    What GrnTea said. We used Mod I and Mod A in PM&R (Physical medicine and rehabilitation) to describe the patients ADL status. If they were allowed to move around their room without assistance they'd be on Mod I status or Mod A if they required someone to assist.

    Mod A = Moderate Assistance

    Mod I = Modified Independence

    Also: SBA = Standby Assistance, CGA = Contact Guard Assistance, Min A = Minimal Assistance, Max A = Maximal Assistance, Total A = Total Assistance or Totally Dependent
