Evaluation of two cane instruments in older adults with knee osteoarthritis

Nancy Harada, PT, PhD, et al.

The study described the psychometric properties of the Cane Cognitive Mediator Scale (CCMS) and Psychosocial Impact of Assistive Devices Scale (PIADS) in adults with osteoarthritis (OA) and determined the feasibility of using these instruments as screening tools to identify patients who are likely to use a cane. The findings indicate acceptable test-retest reliability for the CCMS Attitudes and Subjective Norms subscales. Internal consistency reliability was good for the CCMS and PIADS. The CCMS Subjective Norms subscale demonstrated acceptable predictive validity across all subjects, while the PIADS Adaptability subscale demonstrated acceptable predictive validity for adults 45 to 64 years old.
