Establishing the reliability and validity of measurements of walking time using the Emory Functional Ambulation Profile. Gait training with a robotic leg brace after stroke: Overall, this study prompts a revisiting of the topic of informed decision making for therapists, when selecting functional outcome measures. The impact of patient’s weight on post-stroke rehabilitation.

However, these findings provide valuable information regarding the use of the TUG as a screening tool in a school-age population, and show that the TUG is more complex than previously assumed. The aim of this dissertation is prifile evaluate the feasibility of using the m-EFAP in school-age children.

The mEFAP was evaluated for its interrater reliability, test-retest reliability, pprofile validity, and sensitivity to change during outpatient rehabilitation for poststroke gait dysfunction.

Literature on outcome measures in children has focused almost exclusively on capacity-based assessments that generally lack robust environmental context or demonstrate issues with objectivity.

Walking adaptability therapy after stroke: What determines good recovery in patients with the most severe strokes? The results, clinical emort and future research are discussed. In this dissertation, Dynamic Systems Theory DST is proposed as a framework to assist in understanding the importance of task and environment in assessing functional mobility. These mandates apply to all persons, including children receiving therapy-based services. Topics Discussed in This Paper.

It was hypothesized that total scores and subtasks on the m-EFAP would be correlated with the Activity Performance subsection of the School Function Assessment SFAprofole is a well-developed instrument used in the school setting.
