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. Overall, this study prompts a revisiting of the topic of informed decision making for therapists, when selecting functional outcome measures.
