    Abstract

    Our first objective was to make an inventory of available instruments for the assessment of disabilities in gait and related activities in patients with rheumatic disorders. Our second aim was to investigate which of these instruments have acceptable methodological quality with regard to reliability and validity. Our third aim was to investigate the assumption that the evaluation of convergent construct validity results in stronger correlations when validated against a more similar construct.
