Abstract: Objectives To examine (1) the intra-rater, interrater, and test-retest reliabilities of the timed Up and Go test with a motor task (TUGmotor) in terms of the number of steps taken in the test and completion time in a population with chronic strokeMergeCell (2) the relation between stroke-specific impairments and the number of steps taken in the test and the completion timeMergeCell (3) the minimum detectable change in TUGmotor timesMergeCell and (4) the cutoff time that best discriminates the performance of people with stroke from that of older adults without stroke. Design Cross-sectional study. Setting University-based rehabilitation center. Participants A sample (N=65) of chronic stroke survivors (n=33) and healthy older adults (n=32). Interventions Not applicable. Main Outcome Measures TUGmotor times and number of steps takenMergeCell Fugl-Meyer Assessment for the Lower Extremities scoreMergeCell handheld dynamometer measurements of hip abductor, knee flexor and extensor, and ankle dorsiflexor and plantar flexor muscle strengthMergeCell 5-times sit-to-stand test time, Berg Balance Scale scoreMergeCell conventional timed Up and Go test time, and Activities-specific Balance Confidence scale and Community Integration Measure questionnaire scores. Results The TUGmotor completion times and number of steps demonstrated excellent intra-rater, interrater, and test-retest reliabilities. The TUGmotor times correlated significantly with the Fugl-Meyer Assessment for the Lower Extremities and Berg Balance Scale scores, with hip abductor, knee flexor, ankle dorsiflexor and plantar flexor strength on the paretic side, with 5-times sit-to-stand test times, and with times on the conventional timed Up and Go test. The minimum detectable change in TUGmotor time was 3.53 seconds in stroke survivors. A TUGmotor cutoff time of 13.49 seconds was found to best discriminate the performance of stroke survivors from that of older adults without stroke. Conclusions The TUGmotor is a reliable, valid, and easy-to-administer clinical tool for assessing advanced functional mobility after a stroke.
