BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Few clinical tools available for assessment of postural abilities are specifically designed for stroke patients. [] Key Method This new scale has been validated in 70 patients tested on the 30th and 90th days after stroke onset. RESULTS Normative data obtained in 30 age-matched healthy subjects are presented. The PASS meets the following requirements: (1) good construct validity: high correlation with concomitant Functional Independence Measure (FIM) scores (r=0.73, P=10(-6)), with…

A Comparison of the Responsiveness of the Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke and the Berg Balance Scale in Patients With Severe Balance Deficits After Stroke
TLDR
Compared with the BBS, the PASS was better able to detect balance improvements in patients having severe balance deficits and is recommended as an outcome measure to detect change in balance in patients with stroke who have severebalance deficits.
The Modified Version of the Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke Patients. Measurement properties and a longitudinal follow-up.
TLDR
The results of the measurement properties of theSwePASS indicate that this scale is useful in the clinical setting for patients with stroke and Rasch analysis of the SwePASS indicates that it works as a global measurement of postural control in patients with strokes but displays disordered thresholds and local dependency.
Analysis and Comparison of the Psychometric Properties of Three Balance Measures for Stroke Patients
TLDR
The Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke Patients showed slightly better psychometric characteristics than the other 2 measures, and showed very acceptable levels of reliability, validity, and responsiveness for both clinicians and researchers.
Developing a Short Form of the Postural Assessment Scale for People With Stroke
TLDR
The authors’ results provide strong evidence that the 5-item PASS-3L has sound psycho-metric properties in people with stroke and is thus recommended.
Use of the Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke Patients in Determining Acute Care Discharge Recommendations
TLDR
The purpose of this quality improvement project was to assess the feasibility of physical therapists' use of the Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke patients as a screening tool to assist with discharge recommendations.
Directionally Specific Objective Postural Response Assessment Tool for Treatment Evaluation in Stroke Patients
  • I. Cikajlo, Z. Matjačić
  • Psychology, Medicine
    IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering
  • 2009
TLDR
The results of the weight load ratio between the affected and unaffected lower extremity demonstrated objective positive outcomes of the rehabilitation and also correlated with the clinical instrument BBS, a clinical outcome measure of balance.
Between-day reliability of centre of pressure measures for balance assessment in hemiplegic stroke patients
TLDR
In clinical practice, the CoP-based velocity variables should be prefer to CEAREA to assess and monitor postural sway over time in hemiplegic stroke patients, because the poor reliability of CoPML compromises its use to assess weight-bearing asymmetry.
A validation study using a modified version of Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke Patients: Postural Stroke Study in Gothenburg (POSTGOT)
TLDR
The high intrarater and interrater reliability shown for the modified Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke Patients, the Swedish version of Postural assessment Scale for stroke Patients, with traditional and newer statistical analyses, particularly for assessments performed by the same rater, support the use of the Swedes version of postural assessment scale, in the acute stage after stroke both in clinical and research settings.

A new test of dynamic standing balance for stroke patients : Reliability, validity and comparison with healthy elderly
TLDR
A new clinical test of dynamic standing balance, called the Step Test, has been developed to evaluate dynamic single limb stance, which may be important in identifying balance problems during common potentially destabilizing activities, such as locomotion, for stroke patients.
Evaluation of functional capacity after stroke as a basis for active intervention. Presentation of a modified chart for motor capacity assessment and its reliability.
TLDR
An internal consistency reliability test was performed, using the standardized item alpha coefficient calculated from the values of 231 patients with stroke on admission, and confirms that the chart and its different parts have high homogeneity and that the test situations were adequate.
[Postural balance following stroke: towards a disadvantage of the right brain-damaged hemisphere].
TLDR
This study confirms the existence of a right hemispheric dominance for postural control in right brain-damaged patients, based on a right hemisphere dominance for spatial attention and/or representation, and argued for a relationship between the main result and the well known cerebral organization of spatial information processing.
Ordinal and timed balance measurements: reliability and validity in patients with stroke
TLDR
The Spearman correlations showed that balance measurements were a valid indicator of walking performance regardless of whether timed or ordinal measurements were used to characterize balance and gait.
Reliability of the Fugl-Meyer assessment for testing motor performance in patients following stroke.
TLDR
The overall reliability of assessments made with the Fugl-Meyer evaluation of physical performance in a rehabilitation setting was high, and the intraclass correlation coefficients for the subsections of the assessment varied from .61 for pain to .97 for the upper extremity.
Measuring balance in the elderly: preliminary development of an instrument
TLDR
The goal for this study was to develop a measure of balance appropriate for elderly individuals and there was a high degree of internal consistency, a Cronbach's alpha of .96, which indicates the movements reflect a single underlying dimension.
Relationships among walking performance, postural stability, and functional assessments of the hemiplegic patient.
TLDR
The results of this study lend support to the use of the Fugl-Meyer Assessment and Barthel Index as quantitative measures of hemiplegic patient's function.
Investigation of a new motor assessment scale for stroke patients.
TLDR
The MAS was found to be highly reliable with an average interrater correlation of .95 and an average test-retest correlation of.98.
Relationships among walking performance, postural stability, and functional assessments of the hemiplegic patient.
TLDR
The results of this study lend support to the use of the Fugl-Meyer Assessment and Barthel Index as quantitative measures of hemiplegic patient's function.
