To estimate interrater and intrarater-interoccasion reliability, internal consistency, concurrent and convergent validity, and floor/ceiling effects of the three BESTests, and other related measures, namely, Berg balance scale (BBS), Functional Gait Assessment (FGA), and Activities-Specific Balance Confidence Scale (ABC) among patients with TKA.
The three BESTests have good reliability and validity for evaluating balance in people with TKA. The Brief BESTest is least time-consuming and may be more useful clinically.
