Table 2 Correlations between CBM and balance, gait, and walking outcomes

From: Concurrent validity and reliability of the Community Balance and Mobility scale in young-older adults

Balance and/or mobility tests Spearman correlation with CBM score
  ρ (p) 95% CI p-value
FAB scale (score) 0.75 0.59; 0.85 <.001
8-level balance scale (score) 0.35 0.03; 0.61 .013
3MTW test (seconds)a −0.35 −0.65; 0.00 .05
3MTW test (errors) a −.61 −0.33; − 0.83 <.001
TUG test (seconds)b −0.42 −0.10; − 0.67 .006
Gait speed (cm/seconds)b 0.46 0.22; 0.66 <.001
