Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

This study explored therapists’ experience and accuracy in rating assistance levels in pivot transfers. Results indicate that accuracy in rating transfers was poor regardless of experience and that the patient’s ground reaction forces (GRFs) were a better predictor than the therapist’s GRFs for rating patient effort during the transfer.
