Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to present the Turkish version of miniBESTest which evaluates the reasons of balance deficit and postural control. Accordingly, a practice of validity and reliability on adult patients with sensoriomotor impairments will be performed by utilizing the Turkish version of miniBESTest in this study.

Condition or disease
Parkinson Disease Multiple Sclerosis Trauma, Brain

Detailed Description:

Physical therapists encounter postural control problems frequently. These problems require multifaceted assessment. Therefore, the treatment of postural control problems should be planned after a multifaceted assessment.

Balance Evaluation Systems Test (BESTest) comprises 27 items and evaluate all components of postural control. MiniBESTest is a shortened version of BESTest with 14 tasks. MiniBESTest still addresses almost all components of postural control and can be performed 15 min. MiniBESTest is one of the most common methods which practiced on adult patients.

The aim of this study is to present the Turkish version of miniBESTest which evaluates the reasons of balance deficit and postural control. Accordingly, a practice of validity and reliability on adult participants with sensoriomotor impairments will be performed by utilizing the Turkish version of miniBESTest in this study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mini BESTest [ Time Frame: 10-15 minutes. ]
    Mini-BESTest focuses on dynamic balance. It includes a total of 14 different tasks, each rated on a 3-level between 0 (severe postural control impairment) and 2 (no postural control impairment) with a maximal score of 28.
