Validation Studies of the Physical Activity Scale for the Elderly (PASE)

Harada et al. 2001

See reference #23

Methods
Relationship between PASE and Mini-logger Activity monitor (ML), a short physical performance battery (EPESE): lower body functioning (LBF), 6-minute walk (6M), BMI and self-report functioning/ well being measures: Physical functioning (PF), general health perceptions (GH), mental health (MH) and pain (P) (Pearson Correlations)
Sample
87 older adults; 61% Japanese American, 34% white, 5% African American; 65-89 years of age
Summary Results
  PASE total score (All subjects)
ML-
ankle 0.59***
waist 0.52***
EPESE-
LBF 0.57**
6-M 0.58**
BMI -.007
PF 0.30**
GH 0.326*
MH 0.23*
P 0.17

* p < 0.05   ** p < 0.01   *** p < 0.001

Summary Legend:
ML = Mini-logger Activity monitor
EPESE = Short physical performance battery
LBF = Lower body functioning
6M = 6-minute walk BMI
PF = Physical functioning and self-report functioning / well being measures
GH = General health perceptions
MH = Mental health
P = Pain

Diastolic BP 0.003
Resting HR 0.02
%BF -0.01
Balance score 0.20**

-(SIP) total score -0.42*
-heart rate -0.13*
-grip strength 0.37*
-static balance 0.33*
