Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

This poster summarizes the results of a study of the inter-rater and intra-rater reliability of the Kansas University Sitting Balance Scale, a tool for describing balance in an objective and measurable manner. Results of the study indicate that the tool can reliably be used by OTs to describe the sitting balance of their adult patients.
