Pallavi Mane | Shyam Ganvir [7]


Abstract: Background: The Activities-specific Balance Confidence (ABC) scale is a reliable and valid tool to quantify balance confidence and fall risk among older adults, Parkinson?s disease, stroke, brain injury, vestibular disorder and non-specific patient population. Availability of self-administered scale in a native language would make research and the clinical management more effective so this study is aimed to see the correlation and reliability of Modified Activities-Specific Balance Scale-Indian Rural Population. Objective: 1. To quantify the reliability of Modified Activities-Specific Balance Scale-Indian Rural Population. Method: The scale is performed on a person age 60 and an older instruction was given to the participants about study and its benefits and risk in their own language. Consent was taken from participants. Balance will be evaluated with Modified-Activity specific balance scale and values will be noted. Result: The correlation between Activity specific balance confidence scale and Modified Activities-Specific Balance Scale-Indian Rural Population was done using Pearson correlation which shows significant correlation. The reliability of Activity specific balance confidence scale and Modified Activities-Specific Balance Scale-Indian Rural Population was done and it was found to be 0.9. Conclusion: The results Modified Activities-Specific Balance Scale-Indian Rural Population may be a useful tool for to quantify balance confidence and fall risk among older a elderly populations.
