- Lower scores reflect poorer levels of mobility.
- No cut-points or normative data have been established for the SCI population
- Published data for the SCI population is available for comparison (see the Interpretability section of the Clinical Summary).
MCID: not established
SEM: not established
MDC: not established
- Test-retest reliability is high for the telephone-administered COVS (TCOVS) (Intraclass Correlation Coefficient = 1.00).
- Equivalence reliability is high between TCOVS and COVS (Intraclass Correlation Coefficient = 0.98).
(Barket et al. 2007)
- The COVS can discriminate across clinically distinct groups (by lesion level, completeness of injury and walking status) during discharge from hospital and admission to a transitional rehabilitation program.
(Campbell & Kendall 2003)
No values were reported for the responsiveness of the COVS for the SCI population.
No values were reported for the presence of floor/ceiling effects in the COVS for the SCI population.
