J Rehabil Res Dev. 2013;50(10):1401–11. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Objective and subjective measures reflect different aspects of balance in multiple sclerosis Michelle H.

J Rehabil Res Dev. 2013;50(10):1401–11. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Aim – Evaluate relationships between subjective and objective balance measures in multiple sclerosis (MS). Relevance – Many people with MS report having poor balance and many also perform poorly on objective measures of balance. – The relationships between objective and subjective measures of balance in MS are not known.

J Rehabil Res Dev. 2013;50(10):1401–11. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Method 54 subjects with MS. Measures – Objective: Sensory Organization Test (SOT) using dynamic posturography. – Subjective: Activities-specific Balance Confidence (ABC) Scale and Falls Efficacy Scale-International (FES-I). – MS-related disability: Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS). Relationships between magnitude and velocity of center of pressure sway, composite SOT, ABC Scale, FES-I, and EDSS scores were assessed.

J Rehabil Res Dev. 2013;50(10):1401–11. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Results Magnitude and velocity of center of pressure sway statistically significantly correlated with: – ABC Scale. – FES-I. – EDSS. Composite SOT statistically significantly correlated with: – ABC Scale. – FES-I. – EDSS.

J Rehabil Res Dev. 2013;50(10):1401–11. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Conclusion Objective balance measures (posturography) were significantly related to subjective imbalance reports and clinical disability measures in MS. Relationships are moderate to weak. – Indicates that comprehensive description of balance problems in people with MS likely requires objective and subjective balance measures.
