The Foot and Ankle Ability Measure (FAAM) is a patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) designed to be a comprehensive assessment of physical. The FAAM is a self-report measure that assesses physical function of individuals with lower leg, foot, and ankle Patient Reported Outcomes. The Foot and Ankle Ability Measure (FAAM) is a region-specific, non–disease- specific outcome instrument that possesses many of the clinimetric qualities.

Martin, PhD, PT, CSCS, contributed to conception and design, analysis and interpretation of the data, and critical revision and final approval of the article. Four items related to pain and one related to sleeping were removed from the ADL subscale to improve psychometric properties of the instrument.

Ouctome results suggest that although the measures are related, they appear to capture unique information. Four instruments met the criteria of this review: We analyzed our data with SPSS version The Foot and Ankle Ability Measure is a item questionnaire divided into two subscales: As anticipated, athletes who rated their ankles as normal scored higher than those who scored their ankles as anything less than normal.

F, Van Swearingen J. A total of 53 athletes expressed interest in the study.

If one item is not answered the highest score is 80, if two are not answered the total highest score is 76, etc. The stability of a score with repeated measurements over time is defined as test-retest reliability. These results imply that collegiate athletes with Outckme have mmeasure limitations with ADLs than with sports activities and that the sports subscale can elucidate these limitations.

This information suggests that these athletes were functioning at high levels.

Evidence of validity for the Foot and Ankle Ability Measure (FAAM).

J Bone Joint Surg Br. A noteworthy finding was that for the relationships between each FAAM subscale score and global rating of function, correlation values were weaker when only the CAI group was examined.

Development and reliability of the Ankle Instability Instrument. Journal List J Athl Train v. Of the remaining athletes in the CAI group, 10 categorically rated their ankles as nearly normaland 1 rated the ankle as abnormal. Scores on the Foot and Ankle Ability Measure activities of daily living and sports subscales were greater in healthy athletes than in those with chronic ankle instability and were greater in the athletes who indicated that their ankles were normal than in those who indicated that their ankles were nearly normal or abnormal.

Scores on the sports subscale of the Foot and Ankle Ability Measure and on the sports global rating of function had a strong relationship. M, Sterner R, Kuligowski L.

The effect of recurrent ankle inversion sprain and taping on proprioception at the ankle. Additionally, this study was designed to provide validity evidence for interpretation of FAAM scores.

Open in a separate window. Therefore, although they may score high on the ADL items of the FAAM, they may rate global function lower outcme of their limitation in sports. We hypothesized that FAAM scores 1 would be different between a group of athletes outtcome CAI and a group of healthy athletes, 2 would be able to distinguish between a self-reported normal and abnormal level of function, and 3 would be related to the global rating of function values.

Am J Sports Med. This phenomenon may be explained in part by the characteristics of the population that we examined.

Construct validity While evidence for content relates measuree to what the items measure, evidence for construct validity assesses how the scores on the instrument relate to other measures of the construct.
