Abstract

The objective of this study is to develop and standardize an evaluation of standing ability based upon functional criteria which would reflect the degree of proficiency at independently performing activities of daily living. A clinical test of standing function was designed which could be applied by therapists to document baseline performance and determine the effectiveness of treatment programs. Data from 69 able-bodied individuals between the ages of 12 and 17 were analyzed statistically and normal standards were established. Application of the test in standing was found to be significantly different than published norms for sitting.
