3 Normal: Able to smoothly change walking speed without loss of balance or gait deviation. Shows a significant difference in walking speeds between normal, fast, and slow speeds. Deviates no more than 6 in outside of the 12-in walkway width. Normal: Able to smoothly change walking speed without loss of balance or gait deviation. Shows a significant difference in walking speeds between normal, fast, and slow speeds. Deviates no more than 6 in outside of the 12-in walkway width.
2 Mild impairment: Is able to change speed but demonstrates mild gait deviations, deviates 6-10 in outside of the 12-in walkway width, or no gait deviations but unable to achieve a significant change in velocity, or uses an assistive device. Mild impairment: Is able to change speed but demonstrates mild gait deviations, deviates 6-10 in outside of the 12-in walkway width, or no gait deviations but unable to achieve a significant change in velocity, or uses an assistive device.
1 Moderate impairment: Makes only minor adjustments to walking speed, or accomplishes a change in speed with significant gait deviations, deviates 10-15 in outside the 12-in walkway width, or changes speed but loses balance but is able to recover and continue walking. Moderate impairment: Makes only minor adjustments to walking speed, or accomplishes a change in speed with significant gait deviations, deviates 10-15 in outside the 12-in walkway width, or changes speed but loses balance but is able to recover and continue walking.
0 Severe impairment: Cannot change speeds, deviates greater than 15 in outside the 12-in walkway width, or loses balance and has to reach for wall or be caught.
