- To validate the inter-rater and intra-rater reliability of a new scale for the assessment of ataxia and neurologic dysfunction (STAND)
- To assess common constructs and correlation between STAND subscale items.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Spinocerebellar Ataxia - All Sub-types Friedreich's Ataxia||Other: Ataxia rating scale|
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Actual Enrollment :||30 participants|
|Official Title:||Preliminary Study of the Scale To Assess Ataxia and Neurologic Dysfunction (STAND)|
|Study Start Date :||October 2012|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||June 2016|
Subjects with Ataxia
Patients with a diagnosis of ataxia (Friedreich's ataxia or Spinocerebellar ataxia type 1-30) aged 18-80 years old will be recruited for the study.
Other: Ataxia rating scale
Administer new rating scale for ataxia. This will be administered by two different raters on two separate occassions, 4 to 6 weeks apart.
- Inter- and intra-rater agreement [ Time Frame: 4 to 6 weeks ]Assess agreement between raters (inter-rater agreement) and within raters (intra-rater agreement) through the evaluation of STAND total score, subtotals and individual variables using intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs).
