Abstract

Objectives: The most widely used type of physical activity measure is the self-report survey. Of the available

self-report physical activity measures, the vast majorities were developed for use in the general population

and typically focus on measuring participation in recreational and sport activities. As a result, the existing

self-report measures are insufficiently sensitive to measure very low intensity activities that might account

for the bulk of daily energy expenditure among people with SCI. The content of these measures also fails to

capture activities that are part of SCI lifestyle. ‘Physical Activity Recall Assessment for People with Spinal

Cord Injury’ [PARA-SCI] was published in August 2005. PARA-SCI is a measure of physical activity for

individuals with SCI who use a wheelchair as their primary mode of mobility. It has been translated in

various languages, thus the aim of the study is to study the psychometric properties of Hindi version of

physical activity recall assessment-SCI.

Methods: PARA SCI was translated in phase 1 of the study and the reliability and validity of the instrument

was done

Results: There was significant correlation observed in test –retest reliability and Vo2 max calculated by 12

minute wheelchair test correlated with the subcomponent of PARA SCI

Conclusion: The Hindi version of PARA-SCI is a reliable and valid instrument
