TUG in ED

TUG

What I need

  • Arm chair is set up
  • Tape is marked on the floor 10 feet (3m)
  • Both of patient's shoulders are fully visible (No hair down, No collar on shirt, No scarf)
  • While recording, I will sit and hold this device still with both hands, the device resting on my lap and straight up and down.
  • I understand not to move, or zoom in/out while recording.
  • After I start recording, I will count 1, 2, 3 as the patient sits still and then say "Go"
  • Once the patient returns to the chair, I will count 1, 2, 3 as the patient sits still and then stop recording
  • I will remember the time on the "camera clock" when I say 'Go' and when the patient sits. I will then calculate the time by "stop watch" for the Review survey.
