Reliability and Validity of Modified Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke Patients and the Application of This Scale on Early Detection of Patients With Stroke at High Risk of Falls
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
The purposes of this study are to investigate the reliability and validity of the modified Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke Patients (mPASS) and its applications in early detection of fall-prone patients.
The intraclass correlation coefficient will be used to examine the intra-rater reliability, inter-rater reliability, and the Cronbach’s alpha will be used to examine the internal consistency of the 16 items of mPASS.
