Proprioception is the awareness of the body position, orientation, movement and sensation of force. It is a sense which indicates whether the body is moving with required effort and as well as where the different parts of the body are located in relation to each other. Proprioception testing involves a combination of testing methods like kinaesthesia, joint position sense and sense of force testing. There are different scales available for assessing proprioception like Fugl-Meyer assessment sensory sub scale, Nottingham sensory assessment scale and Integrated Proprioception Screening Scale (IPSS). The proposed study was done on the subjects with age more than 60 yrs and tester, retester and inter-tester reliability and validity was measured. This study also checked the sensitivity of IPSS in Parkinson?s disease patients.
