The Tinetti Gait Assessment is a test used to test the gait of a patient. The patient will be asked to perform each of the maneuvers described in the chart. The patient should stand with the examiner in an obstacle-free hallway. The patient will use his/her usual walking aid, if necessary. The examiner should ask the patient to walk down the hallway at his or her usual pace and observes one component of gait at a time. For some components, the examiner walks behind the patient; for others, the examiner walks next to the patient. It may require several trips to complete the assessment. Record the observations made according to the types of responses. The patient’s response to each maneuver will align most closely with one of the criteria in the tool. Accurate assessment is dependent upon close observation of the patient during each maneuver. Abnormal gait finding may reflect a primary neurologic or musculoskeletal problem directly related to the findings or reflect a compensatory maneuver for other, more remote problem.
