Brief Summary:
Psycometric properties of a scale

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Balance Functionality Diagnostic Test: Management of the Contraversive Pushing Scale

Detailed Description:

After a period of training in the administration of the CPS, a pilot will be conducted with 10 patients who meet the inclusion-exclusion criteria and after signing the informed consent document, in which the 4 researchers will administer the CPS during two sessions on consecutive days, with the objective of evaluating the test-retest and intra-observer reliability, minimize the differences of criteria in its application and, if necessary, write an instruction manual.

Once each patient has signed the informed consent document and it has been verified that the inclusion criteria are met, it will be assigned an Identification Number (ID) that will relate it to your Medical Record (IDHC) by simple coding; The custody of the file with the relation of each ID with its HC will be borne by the principal investigator. Likewise, each observer will be assigned an identification number in order to blind the researcher who performs the statistical analysis. The patients included in the study will be evaluated, through the Spanish version of the CPS, by two of the researchers with an interval of 10 minutes between each evaluation, repeating this same procedure the next day. These evaluation sessions will be carried out throughout the treatment period, repeating on days 1, 15 and 28 of the period of admission of the included patients. Two researchers will evaluate the patients treated in the morning shift and the other two those treated in the afternoon shift of the Physiotherapy Service of the Guadarrama Hospital.
