International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health - Recreational Activities of Daily Living-Skala
The RADL-ICF scale measures the spectrum and extent of non-occupational and recreational leisure activities and can record changes in activity levels during the course of therapy. The RADL-ICF scale was developed on the basis of the bio-psycho-social model of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF; WHO, 2001) and on the basis of the two instruments NPI Interest Check List and the Pleasant Event Scale. The measure is available in three versions: (1) The RADL-ICF-37-A scale has 37 items and is used to measure the current level of activity. The activities can be grouped into five major categories: (a) Cultural activities (k = 9; e.g. trips/travel), (b) Hobbies (k = 7; e.g. photography), (c) Social activities (k = 6; e.g. meeting friends), (d) Physical activities (k = 10; e.g. swimming) and (e) Domestic activities (k = 5; e.g. cooking). (2) The RADL ICF-37-E scale has the same 37 items and is used to assess activity changes under therapy. (3) The RADL-ICF-20 scale has only four major categories. Reliability: There is no information on reliability. Validity: The items of the RADL-ICF scale correspond to the categories of the ICF and can therefore be regarded as valid. For each item the category number from the ICF is given. The validity of the RADL ICF scale is also supported by the empirical results found.
