# of studies reporting psychometric properties: 2
- The range of scores is between 0 (poor mobility) and 15 (good mobility).
- No information is available regarding norms or meaningful cut scores for SCI population
- Published data for the SCI population is available for comparison (see Interpretability section of the Research Summary sheet)
MCID: not established
SEM: not established for the SCI population, but for a chronic stroke sample (N = 50, mean (SD) age: 60.9 (12.8) yrs, Taiwanese sample):
SEM = 0.5
SRD = 2.2
(Chen, H. M., Hsieh, C. L., et al. (2007): “The test-retest reliability of 2 mobility performance tests in patients with chronic stroke.” Neurorehabil Neural Repair 21(4): 347-352)
MDC: not established
No values were reported for the reliability of the RMI for the SCI population.
Correlation of the RMI is High with:
- the Walking Index for Spinal Cord Injury (WISCI) (Spearman’s r = 0.67)
- the Spinal Cord Independence Measure (SCIM) (Spearman’s r = 0.75)
- the Functional Independence Measure (FIM) (Spearman’s r = 0.9)
- the Barthel Index (BI) (Spearman’s r = 0.60).
(Morganti et al. 2005)
No values were reported for the responsiveness of the RMI for the SCI population.
No values were reported for the presence of floor/ceiling effects in the RMI for the SCI population.
