Abstract [en]

The Timed Up and Go-test (TUG) measures balance/physical mobility. The aim of this review was to illustrate TUG's developmental steps, describe the different modifications of TUG and the efforts that has been made to test validity and reliability and finally in what other types of studies it have been used. A literature search in Medline and Cinahl was carried through and resulted in 100 abstracts that were analyzed and categorized according to their content. Some variants of TUG describe adding a manual or cognitive task and calculating the difference in time between TUG and TUG manual/ cognitive; diffTUG. Reliability and validity has been demonstrated to be high for older people. There is some disagreement regarding TUG's predictive value for falls. TUG has been used in effect-, survey- and correlationstudies, and as criterioninstrument as well as in reviews. TUG may in it's simplicity be recommended both in clinical environment and for research purposes, especially for older people.
