Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke: a systematic review for its 20 years old

Abstract : Introduction: The PASS for Postural Assessment Scale for stroke patient is an instrument evaluating posture and balance after stroke published in Stroke in 1999. We propose 20 years after its creation the first systematic review concerning the use of the PASS throughout the world and summarize its psychometric properties. Material and Methods: Results were extract from two strategies in order to be exhaustive. First all articles from Web Of Science and citing the seminal article of the PASS was analyzed since 1999 to December 2019. A complementary researches was performed in EMBASE, PUBMED with the key words ‘postural, balance’, ‘stroke’ following the COSMIN guideline for conducting systematic reviews. Study selection and quality assessment were performed by two reviewers. Results: We analyzed 105 articles and classified them into categories of use of PASS. Among them, 36 studies analyzed psychometric properties of the PASS and enhanced scale like the SwePASS. All psychometric properties were analyzed and level of evidence of that instrument is high for the main psychometrics according to COSMIN guideline. Conclusion: The PASS had become a gold standard throughout years because of good clinometric properties. However, enhanced versions like the SwePASS suggest some improvements that can be done especially to avoid ceiling effect.
