LEFS SCALE PDF

Thomas J Hoogeboom: ln. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Abstract Background The WOMAC is the most widely used self-report measure to evaluate physical functioning in hip or knee osteoarthritis, however its ability to discriminate pain and physical functioning i. To assess reliability and responsiveness, a sample of and patients completed a comparable set of questionnaires within 3 weeks and 3 months, respectively. Feasibility, validity, reliability and responsiveness were evaluated. The minimal detectable change MDC90 was ten points.

Making sharp turns while running fast; Hopping; Rolling over in bed. As per the original study, the main objective of LEFS is to measure patient initial function, rate ongoing progress and quantify outcome.

The range of lower limbs conditions the self report questionnaire addresses includes musculoskeletal disorders, hip, knee or ankle pain as well as foot injuries. In terms of internal reliability the LEFS rates at 0. The results have shown that the change detection in the lower-extremity function in LEFS has greater degrees of correlation with external prognosis compared to the physical function subscale of SF Since the lower back area and the lower extremities are anatomically and functionally related and a common symptom of patients with LBP is radiating low pain, LEFS has been used, with satisfactory psychometric results as supplementary measure of functional limitation.

The clinimetric properties of this lower extremity scale have been tested in a population of patients with ankle fracture. While for medium and long term follow up the scale was found to lack certain specificity, the responsiveness and internal consistency for short term follow up were rated high. LEFS score interpretation The maximum score obtainable is 80 points which signifies complete function and the lowest score is 0 which indicates very low function. All LEFS scores are then awarded as number of points out of the total of The lower the score, the higher the degree of impairment caused by the lower extremity problem.

The minimal detectable change is 9 scale points meaning that for improvement or degradation to be valid, the difference between two subsequent scores needs to be equal to or higher than 9.

Published11 Mar Abstract Purpose. The original English version of the Lower Extremity Functional Scale was translated and cross-culturally adapted into Simplified Chinese according to international guidelines. Psychometric properties including internal consistency, test-retest reliability, content validity, and construct validity were tested. The scale had high values for internal consistency Cronbach and test-retest reliability intraclass correlation. Corrected item-total correlations for every item ranged from 0. And the item-level content validity index I-CVI for each item ranged from 0.

Search Menu Background The increasing use of computerized adaptive tests CATs to generate outcome measures during rehabilitation has prompted questions concerning score interpretation. Design This investigation was a prospective cohort study of 8, people who had hip impairments and were receiving physical therapy in outpatient clinics in 31 states United States between January and June Methods Four approaches were used to clinically interpret outcome data. Second, percentile ranks were applied to FS scores.
