Reliability and adaptability of Hindi version of Lower Extremity Motor Coordination Test
Hypothesis of the study: Hindi version of Lower Extremity Motor Coordination test may or may not be adaptable and useful for Indian population. Study setting: Maharishi Markandeshwar Institute of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation, Mullana, Ambala. Study Type: Observational study. Study Population: Patients with coordination disability. Sample size: 30 Interpretation of Result: The data shows that LEMOCOT has a good Intra- rater Reliability and adaptability. Procedure: There are five phases for the conversion of the English version of the LEMOCOT into Hindi version. First of all, Permission was taken from original developer. after that test is translated into pre- final version with the help of six English/ Hindi teachers and two blinded physiotherapist. Then, content validation is carried out by experts for the adaptation of test and then at the end psychometric evaluation was done.
Steps to reproduce
Patients with Coordination disability was recruited with the help of assessment ( Coordination scale). After that, Patient ask to perform the LEMOCOT, three reading was taken, before that a trial of 5 to 10 seconds was given. Chair , Inch tape, Marker were used during assessment. Result :The total content validation index of the H-LEMOCOT was 0.967, which was excellent. The intra-evaluator dependability of each domain and the computed score connected to the H-LEMOCOT as ICC values is 0.967, showing excellent reliability. All of the internal consistency was tested using Cronbach's alpha, which was 0.967, showing high internal consistency. At the end it was concluded that the H- LEMOCOT demonstrated excellent reliability and validity when used to treat a variety of neurological illnesses. Future studies are needed to ensure that the self-evaluation instrument is reliable.
