The development of the de morton mobility index (DEMMI) in an older acute medical population: item reduction using the Rasch model (part 1).

Abstract

The DEMMI (de Morton Mobility Index) is a new and advanced instrument for measuring the mobility of all older adults across clinical settings. It overcomes practical and clinimetric limitations of existing mobility instruments. This study reports the process of item reduction using the Rasch model in the development of the DEMMI. Prior to this study… (More)
