The place of locomotion ability according to the ICF classification

Locomotion ability, as measured by ABILOCO and ABILOCO-Kids, is defined as the individual’s ability to move about effectively in his/her environment. It refers to the Activity domain of the ICF.

See the page on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health.

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).
