Reliability, validity, and responsiveness of the High–Level Mobility Assessment Tool (HiMAT) in Mild Traumatic Brain Injury MTBI was looked at in Physical Therapy, 05/08/2013. The research was conducted by

Kleffelgaard I et al from the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Oslo University Hospital, Norway together with the Department of Physiotherapy, Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, Norway.
