Fukuda and Babinski-Weil tests: Within-subject variability and test-retest reliability in nondisabled adults. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2014;51(6):1013–22.

Fukuda and Babinski-Weil tests: Within-subject variability and test-retest reliability in nondisabled adults. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2014;51(6):1013–22. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Aim – For Fukuda Stepping and Babinski-Weil tests, compare: Lateral and longitudinal displacements and body rotation. Within-subject variability and test-retest reliability. Correlations between hand and foot dominance and these measures. Relevance – Diagnostic value of these tests is questionable because both patients with unilateral vestibular disorders and nondisabled adults demonstrate rotation.

Fukuda and Babinski-Weil tests: Within-subject variability and test-retest reliability in nondisabled adults. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2014;51(6):1013–22. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Method 50 young, nondisabled participants performed: – 3 trials of 100-step Fukuda Stepping test. – 3 trials of Babinski-Weil test. Testing session was repeated 7 d later (retest).

Fukuda and Babinski-Weil tests: Within-subject variability and test-retest reliability in nondisabled adults. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2014;51(6):1013–22. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Results Lateral displacement, body rotation, and within- subject variability: – Larger on Fukuda than Babinski-Weil test. Test-retest reliability: – No difference between tests. Body rotation on Fukuda test and score on Waterloo Footedness Questionnaire: – Significant correlation.

Fukuda and Babinski-Weil tests: Within-subject variability and test-retest reliability in nondisabled adults. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2014;51(6):1013–22. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Conclusion Results and psychometric properties suggest that Babinski-Weil test is superior to Fukuda test. Future research with nondisabled participants should compare tests in which equal number of steps is performed.
