Psychometric Properties of Hindi Version of Physical Activity Recall Assessment for People with Spinal Cord Injury
Keywords:Spinal Cord Injury, Physical Activity Recall Assessment - Spinal Cord Injury, Activity Daily Living, Leisure time physical activity.
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
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
