OBJECTIVE To examine the concurrent validity of the Berg Balance Scale (BBS) in subjects with hemiparesis after stroke by correlating functional balance performance on the BBS with laboratory measures of balance (center of pressure [CP] and electromyographic [EMG] activity of leg musculature during rapid arm flexion and during quiet stance). DESIGN Concurrent validation study. Consistency of performance was determined through repeat measures obtained from 13 subjects. SETTING Laboratory… CONTINUE READING
