The purpose of the study was to evaluate the metric properties of this instrument and frencbay obtain normal values in a group of unselected elderly subjects. The mean scores in the prestroke, poststroke, and control group demonstrated differences in functional status. The present findings suggest that the Korean version of the FAI would be useful as a measure of IADL and the results of the factor analysis might reflect socio-cultural differences, actiivities as illiteracy, low socioeconomic level, and sex roles of the Korean elderly.
The reliability of the instrument could be improved by deleting two items and by creating two subscale scores: The speed of population aging in South Korea is projected as the fastest in the world, and a long-term care insurance law has been just enacted.
Assessment of functional status in stroke patients is of major importance in both clinical practice incex outcome studies.
The Frenchay Activities Index. Assessment of functional status in stroke patients.
Principal-components analysis indicated that the Frenchay Activities Index showed two traits: The content and discriminative validity were found to be satisfactory. Reliability and validity of the instrument were assessed.
In addition, a Korean version of the FAI has not been developed yet. The Frenchay Activities Frenchya was tested in a group of stroke patients and a group of unselected subjects aged 65 or older. The FAI has undergone the most intensive evaluation, but there are only a few studies to establish its validity and reliability for community-dwelling elderly. The construct validity was supported by meaningful correlations between the Frenchay Activities Index and scores on the Barthel Index and Sickness Impact Profile.
Characteristics of the Frenchay Activities Index one year after a stroke: a population-based study.
Therefore, it is important to estimate the number of the disabled community-dwelling elderly in South Korea. The Frenchay Activities Index is a useful stroke-specific instrument to assess functional status. The Frenchay Activities Index FAI is a scale to measure higher level of physical function or activities that are necessary for independence in the community, i.
Their prestroke activitids was registered retrospectively.
The related factors to IADL were age, gender, education level, and living conditions. The Frenchay Activities Index has been developed specifically for measuring disability and handicap in stroke patients.
The reliability of unweighted scores range of Cronbach’s alpha-coefficients, 0. In the results of the factor analysis, a reasonable four-component solution domestic chores, outdoor work, leisure and hobby was found.
The functional status of the stroke patients was measured 26 weeks after stroke. Completion of the questionnaire is easy and takes only a few minutes. Currently, the instrument is suitable for use in patient care and cross-sectional, descriptive studies.
