|"How-To" Video Series|
The American Academy of Orthotists & Prosthetists has produced a video series that will equip you with the tools you need to report outcome measures with ease. View these short videos and accompanying reference guides and get a better grasp on reporting your patients' outcome measures.

Edinburgh Visual Gait Score (EVGS)
The Edinburgh Visual Gait Score (EVGS) was developed and used to visually assess gait deviations for ambulatory children with cerebral palsy (CP).
Modified Emory Functional Ambulation Profile (mEFAP)
The Modified Emory Functional Ambulation Profile (mEFAP) is a simple observational gait speed test designed for ease of administration.
Patient-Specific Functional Scale (PSFS)
The Patient-Specific Functional Scale (PSFS) is widely investigated and among the most commonly used self-report, patient specific outcome measures.
Box and Block Test (BBT)
The Box and Block Test (BBT) is an outcome measure used to assess and monitor unilateral upper extremity manual dexterity.
StepWatchTM Activity Monitor
The StepWatchTM Activity Monitor is a tool used to objectively measure and monitor step count in patients with and without gait abnormalities in both adult and pediatric populations.
Dynamic Gait Index (DGI)
The Dynamic Gait Index is a reliable clinical tool that was developed to assess an individual’s balance and fall risk.
Five Time Sit to Stand Test (FTSST)
The Five Time Sit to Stand Test (FTSST) is used to measure a patient’s functional mobility and muscle strength of their lower extremities.
Prosthetic Limb Users Survey of Mobility (PLUS-M)
The PLUS-M is a patient reported outcome measure designed to assess mobility in adults with lower extremity amputations.
Prosthetic Observational Gait Scale (POGS)
The Prosthetic Observational Gait Scale (POGS) is a standardized set of 16 criteria for determining efficient gait in lower limb amputees.
Timed Ten-Meter Walk Test (10MWT)
The 10-meter walk test (10MWT) is an outcome measure designed to assess self-selected walking speed, fastest possible walking speed, and the ability of a subject to walk in a straight line.
Berg Balance Scale (BERG)
The Berg Balance Scale is a generic outcome measure that is used to assess balance.
Four Square Step Test (FSST)
Four Square Step Test (FSST) is an outcome measure that is designed to assess a subject’s dynamic stability and ability to step over small objects forward, laterally, and backward.
Timed Up and Go (TUG)
The Timed Up and Go (TUG) is a performance-based outcome measure designed to assess basic functional mobility in elderly and for identifying individuals who are at risk for falls.
L Test for Functional Mobility (L Test)
The L Test for Functional Mobility (L Test) is a performance-based outcome measure designed to assess basic functional mobility and was developed to address ceiling effects noted with the Timed-Up-And-Go (TUG) test.
Timed Single Limb Stance (SLS) Test
The timed single limb stance (SLS) test is an outcome measure designed to assess static balance and the ability of the subject to stand on a pathological or sound limb.
