GaitRITE

Overview

A literature search was conducted to identify all relevant publications on the psychometric properties of the GAITRite System. One study involving patients with stroke, and another involving healthy adults were identified and reviewed for the purposes of this module.

Floor/Ceiling Effects

No studies have investigated the ceiling effects of the GAITRite System in patients with stroke.

Reliability

Internal constancy
No studies have investigated the internal consistency of the GAITRite System in patients with stroke.

Intra-rater
No studies have investigated the intra-rater reliability of the GAITRIte System in patients with stroke.

Inter-rater
No studies have investigated the inter-rater reliability of the GAITRite System in patients with stroke.

Test-retest

Kuys, Brauer and Ada (2011) examined the GAITRite System of the GAITRite System is slightly higher for individuals with more limited mobility.

Validity

Content validity
No studies have investigated the content validity of the GAITRIte System in patients with stroke.

Criterion validity
Concurrent validity
Bilney, Morris and Webster (2002) compared the concurrent validity (ICC = 0.44-0.57) between the two measures.

Predictive
No studies have investigated the predictive validity of the GAITRIte System in patients with stroke.

Sensitivity/ Specificity
