- •The Balance Assessment in Sitting and Standing Positions has sound psychometric properties.
- •The Balance Assessment in Sitting and Standing Positions is as responsive as the Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke Patients.
- •Rasch scores of the Balance Assessment in Sitting and Standing Positions can identify patients' balance ability.
