What it measures:

Confidence in performing various ambulatory activities without falling

Target Population:

People with traumatic brain injury (TBI)

16-item self-report measure in which patients rate their balance confidence in performing several activities, using a rating scale of 0–100 (0= no confidence, 100=complete confidence)

Overall score calculated by adding item scores and then dividing by the total number of items.

Professional Association Recommendations:


Appears reasonable to use, but limited study in target group; the outcome measure has good or excellent psychometric properties and clinical utility in a related population, but insufficient study in target population to support higher recommendation.
