Development of the ABILOCO scale using the Rasch measurement model
The ABILOCO questionnaire assesses locomotion ability as an interview-based test focused on patient's perceived difficulty. This questionnaire was originally developed using the Rasch measurement model which allows to convert ordinal scores into linear measures located on a unidimensional scale.
ABILOCO has been calibrated in adult stroke patients (Caty et al, 2007). The original version of ABILOCO was developed in English. However, other version is currently available in French (see downloads section).
ABILOCO in adult stroke patients
- 13 locomotion activities.
- Each item is answered on a 2-level scale (impossible or possible).
- Measurement range: approx. 8.5 logits.
- Separation reliability: 0.93 in our sample of 100 adult stroke patients.
- Invariant item hierarchy across: sex, age, affected side, delay since stroke.
- Construct validity: ABILOCO vs FWC (ρ = 0.81), vs FAC (ρ = 0.84), vs FIMw (ρ = 0.81), and vs the 10-meter Walking Test (r = 0.83).
