IC04: Update on Functional Mobility Assessment and Uniform Data Set

Standardized outcome measures and associated datasets are necessary to improve evidence and accountability in the field of mobility assistive equipment. This session will present updated developments in the Functional Mobility Assessment (FMA) registry along with the development of accompanied Uniform Data Set (UDS). Challenges and strategies associated with the implementation of standardized measures in clinical routine and associated data collection, aggregation, and analyses will be discussed from previous work and current collaborations with VGM/U.S. Rehab, The Ohio State University Medical Center, and Veteran's Administration.
