Abstract in Portuguese
Objetivo: verificar a aplicabilidade, reprodutibilidade e validade do SCIM III nos pacientes com paraparesia espástica. Método: estudo transversal incluindo 30 sujeitos (66% mulheres; 41,5±14,7 anos) com paraparesia espástica de etiologia genética, infecciosa ou a esclarecer que foram avaliados pela análise computadorizada da marcha, versão brasileira da SCIM III (0-100 pontos), MIF (18-126 pontos), por 2 examinadores (A e B) no mesmo dia e 1 semana depois (A). Resultados: o coeficiente de correlação intraclasse (CCI) para o uso da SCIM III indicou boa reprodutibilidade intra e inter-examinadores (CCI=0,9). A correlação de Spearman entre a SCIM III e a parte motora da MIF foi considerada adequada e estatisticamente significante (Spearman=0,6; p=0,001). A correlação entre as subescalas da SCIM III e os domínios da MIF foi considerada forte e significante para auto-cuidado (Spearman=0,8; p0,001) e moderada para transferências (Spearman=0,6; p=0,0005) e locomoção (Spearman=0,6; p=0,0006). A subescala mobilidade da SCIM III mostrou correlação positiva e significante para cadência (Spearman=0,8; p0,001), velocidade da marcha (Spearman=0,7; p0,001) e comprimento do passo (Spearman=0,6; p0,001). Conclusões: A SCIM III é um instrumento de avaliação funcional reprodutível intra e inter examinadores e capaz de avaliar o nível de independência dos indivíduos com paraparesia espástica. O SCIM III é mais sensível que a MIF, especialmente para pacientes com maior independência. Cadência, velocidade de marcha e comprimento do passo se correlacionaram com a subescala mobilidade

Abstract in English
Purpose: to verify the applicability, reproducibility, and validity of the SCIM III patients with non-traumatic spastic paraplegia. Method: The cross-sectional study included 30 subjects (66% females; 41.5 ± 14.7 y) older with spastic paraparesis of any etiology were assessment by computerized gait analysis and with the Brazilian versions of SCIM III (0-100 points), FIM (18-126 points) by 2raters (A and B) at the same day and 1 week later (A). Results: The intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) for the use of SCIM III indicated good intra and inter-evaluator reproducibility (ICC = 0.9). Correlation between the SCIM III and the motor FIM was appropriate (Spearman=0.6; p0.001). SCIM III subscales and the FIM domains correlated strongly for self-care (Spearman=0.8; p0.001), moderately for transfers (Spearman=0.6; p=0.0005) and locomotion (Spearman=0.6; p=0.0006). SCIM III mobility subscale positively correlated with the cadence (Spearman=0.8; p0.01), gait speed (Spearman=0.7; p0.01), and step length (Spearman=0.6;p0.01). Conclusions: SCIM III is a reproducible functional assessment instrument and capable of evaluating the level of independence of the individual with spastic paraplegia. The SCIM III is more sensitive than the FIM for non-traumatic spastic paraplegic patients with higher levels of independence. Linear gait parameters correlated with its mobility subscale.
