ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was first to develop a Korean version of pediatric functional muscle testing for children with a motor developmental disorder who have a communication problem and who are aged below five years, and also to verify the content validity. METHODS: First, the preliminary study was conducted to verify the reliability of pediatric functional muscle testing, developed by Venita in Korea. Based on the results of the study, the primary evaluation items were selected and modified. Second, the first test of content validity was conducted through a panel discussion, and a second investigation of content validity was carried out by utilizing the Item Content Validity Index (I-CVI). In this study, we selected only 0.78 or more items from I-CVI. RESULTS: Based on the results of the preliminary study, 19 primary evaluation items were selected. Based on the results of the first and second content validity tests, 15 tertiary evaluation items for the Korean version of pediatric functional muscle testing were determined. CONCLUSION: This study developed a new Korean version of pediatric functional muscle testing and suggested that it will be a useful tool to measure muscle strength for Korean children with a motor developmental disorder and a communication problem, aged below five years.
