Criteria for Recommending a Patient Self-Report Functional Outcome

      I am writing in response to the Pinto-Carral et al article “Patient-Reported Mobility: A Systematic Review.”
      • Pinto-Carral A.
      • Fernández-Villa T.
      • Molina de la Torre A.J.
      Patient-reported mobility: a systematic review.
      Based on their results reported in tables 2 and 5, the authors recommended 3 instruments for clinical use (ie, Outpatient Physical Therapy Improvement in Movement Assessment Log [OPTIMAL], Mobility Activities Measure, Mobility Activities Measure for Inpatient Rehabilitation Settings).

          First of all, thank you for the opportunity to respond to this letter. We appreciate the constructive critical view of the author helping us to check our work. In our study, we tried to identify and describe the self-report measures that assess movement or mobility-related activities in adults with disability. For this purpose, we analyzed the mobility within the framework of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF),1 which has proven to be useful to compare health-related measures.
