QTUG Quantitative Timed Up and Go System for Mobility Assessment

QTUG Quantitative Timed Up and Go System for Mobility Assessment

Released on 04 November 2014

The Timed Up and Go test (TUG) is a simple and easy way to assess a person’s mobility and evaluate the chances of experiencing a dangerous fall. The test essentially involves a person getting up from a chair, walking forward, turning around, and getting back in the chair. A trained specialist watches this process, measuring the timing and watching how the person does the task. While this works fairly well, the lack of high quality objective analysis of the walking gait limits the usefulness of the test and may prevent the diagnosis of certain conditions.
