Results of this study will provide information regarding valid use of the m-EFAP as an alternative assessment tool of functional mobility that meets federal regulations for quality and effectiveness as well as practice standards, that is objective, timely, and cost efficient.

Gait training with a robotic leg brace after stroke: Functional measures after traumatic brain injury: Literature on outcome measures in children has focused almost exclusively on capacity-based assessments that generally lack robust environmental context or demonstrate issues with objectivity.

Luigi TesioAnna Cantagallo Journal of outcome measurement 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.

Walking adaptability therapy after stroke: What determines good recovery emoy patients with the most severe strokes? 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.

In this dissertation, Dynamic Functiional Theory DST is proposed as a framework to assist in understanding the importance of task and environment in assessing functional mobility.
