Reliability and validity of the inertial sensor-based Timed "Up and Go" test in individuals affected by stroke

Seline Wüest, PhD, et al.

The instrumented Timed "Up and Go" test (iTUG) could potentially provide clinically useful information that cannot be derived from the original Timed "Up and Go" protocol. This study determined the reliability and validity of the iTUG using inertial sensors in patients with stroke. For test-retest reliability analysis, 14 individuals with stroke and 25 nondisabled individuals were assessed. For validity analysis, an age-matched comparison of 12 patients with stroke and 12 nondisabled controls was performed. The positive results warrant the future application of the inertial sensor-based iTUG to assess physical deficits poststroke in longitudinal study designs.
