Background: The Braden Scale for Predicting Pressure Sore Risk has been tested extensively for reliability and predictive validity. A previous pilot study supported convergent construct validity for the Braden Scale mobility subscale score. Validity is an important issue because subscale scores are intended to guide the plan of care for pressure ulcer prevention. This study is a follow up of the previous work in a larger sample. Objective: To establish the convergent construct validity for the Braden Scale mobility subscale score. Methods: Nursing facility residents [n = 350] ages 65 - over 100 years old at three levels of mobility participated in the TURN [Turning for Ulcer ReductioN] Study, a multisite randomized controlled trial comparing every 2 hour in-bed repositioning with 3 or 4 hour in-bed repositioning on pressure ulcer development. For 7 days participants wore an accelerometer on the ankle which recorded movement in three modes; intensity, duration, and frequency. Results: Two participants requested removal of the accelerometers after 24 hours of wear. Activity for each of the three subscale score groups will be plotted to produce a histogram. One-way analysis of variance and pair-wise multiple comparisons will be conducted to determine differences in mean activity scores. Conclusions: The accelerometers were well tolerated for wearing on the ankle. Other results are pending.
