Summary
Brief summary
All participants attend for two testing sessions at either Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre
or the centre where they received inpatient physiotherapy services.

All participants will be tested at discharge and at six months post discharge. Personnel used
to score and administer the balance tests at six months will be blinded to pre-test scores,
subject background, as well as, mobility and fall history in the six months post discharge.

At discharge participants will perform two successful Four Square Step Tests (FSST, and will
be videotaped performing the Timed Up and Go Test (TUGT. The turn measure will be scored from
this TUGT. Participants will also complete the Locomotor Capabilities index (LCI).

At the six-month test participants repeat balance and mobility tests and LCI, as well as
being interviewed to ascertain fall history since discharge.
