- Timed "Up & Go" Test [ Time Frame: Before randomisation and 3 days before discharge from the department ]The Timed Up & Go (TUG) test assess basic functional mobility.(14). The test measures the time (in seconds)that the subjects used for standing up from the seating position on a chair (chair seat height = 45 cm) with armrest, walking 3 m, turning around and walking back to the chair and sitting down again.
- Barthel Index [ Time Frame: before randomisation and 3 days before discharge from the department ]
BI consists of 10 functional tasks of which 3 tasks focus the function of mowing and walking. Task numbers 8 in BI "Transfer" assess the ability to move and are rated on a 0, 5 and10 point ordinal scale. Task number 9 in BI "Walking" assess the ability to walk rated on a 0, 5 or 10 point scale.
Task number 10 in BI "Stairs" assesses the ability to walk on stairs and is rated with 0, 5, 10 or 15 points.
