However, these findings provide valuable information regarding the use of the TUG as a empry tool in a school-age population, and show that the TUG is more complex than previously assumed.

Modified emory functional ambulation profile: These mandates apply to all persons, including children receiving therapy-based services. Establishing the reliability and validity of measurements of walking time using the Emory Functional Ambulation Profile.
It was hypothesized that total scores and subtasks on the m-EFAP would be correlated with the Activity Performance subsection of the School Function Assessment SFAwhich is a well-developed instrument used in the school setting. Skip to main content.

The impact of patient’s weight on post-stroke rehabilitation. While constructs of the modified-Emory Functional Ambulation Profile m-EFAPa quantitative, objective outcome measure of functional mobility, support current standards of practice and meet federal regulations for quality and payment policies, studies supporting the validity of using the test in school-age children with disabilities have been sparse.
