Study examining the test-retest reliability and cross-validation with consumer goals of the Functional Evaluation in a Wheelchair (FEW) Beta Version 1.0 instrument. Four databases with consumer goals for seating-mobility technology were used to cross-validate the content of the FEW items: (1) an Internet-based study database, (2) a telerehabilitation study database, (3) a CAT medicalized and (4) a CAT consumer-reported clinical database. Results are displayed in table-format. Findings indicated that the FEW Beta Version 1.0 was highly stable in its measurement of seating-mobility goals over a one-week interval. Test-retest reliability indicated that it was highly stable across time.
