Modified disability version of the 10 item Physical Activity Scale for the Elderly (PASE)
Captures information about leisure, household, and work related physical activity over the preceding 7 days
Developed targeting individuals with visual/auditory and locomotor/SCI disabilities
Solicits information about the frequency (number of days a week) and duration (daily hours) of current participation. The specific activity performed in each of these areas is also captured.
Assesses 5 distinct dimensions of physical activity: home repair, lawn and garden work, housework, vigorous sport and recreation, moderate sport and recreation, and occupation and transportation
The PASIPD has the potential to provide in-depth information about the degree of activity in the form of Metabolic Equivalents (METS hr/day) and or descriptive information about various activities individuals are performing as well as the frequency and duration of this activity.
The items of the test were developed with disabled populations in mind.
