dc.description.abstractPurpose: The purpose of this investigation was to determine the interrater and intrarater reliability and validity of The Gait Abilities S~ale (GA.S). Subjects: Three senior Neurologic physical therapists were the subjects as raters. Twenty-six persons following stroke were the videotaped subjects. Methods: Therapists viewed three videotapes each containing randomized video c~ips of twenty-six persons following $troke, range of speed .28-2.7 ft/sec (.085 to .824 m/sec), ambulating 40 feet (12.2 m) and negotiating 4 steps. A visual analog scale ('!AS) was used to score each patient while viewing the first tape, and then the GAS was used to score the second and third videotapes. Analysis: Pearson product-moment coefficient of correlation was used to determine I) concurrent validity between the VAS, GAS scores and speed of ambulation and 2) intrarater GAS reliability. lntracla5s Correlation Coefficient (ICC) w~ used to determine interrater GAS reliability. Results: Correlations between: VAS and GAS: r = 0.815-0.847; GAS and speed: r = 0. 705-0.800. Correlations for Intrarater reliabilitY.: r = 0.848-0.969; interrater reliability: ICC= 0.834. Conclusion: The Gait Abilities ~cale showed high correlations of reliability and validity for these raters viewing a group of patients following stroke with a wide range of speed and assistance.en_US
