Understanding the Difference Between the KAMS and KAMS IL Assessments

A frequently asked question we encounter is:

What is the difference between the KAMS assessment and the KAMS IL?

Both assessments are designed to provide a comprehensive Functional Performance Mapping (FPM) after completion. This mapping highlights six total body dysfunctions (three upper body and three lower body) and identifies whether these dysfunctions are related to mobility, stability, or both. It also indicates the planes in which these dysfunctions most commonly occur.


Key Differences Between KAMS and KAMS IL

1. Target Population

– KAMS: Designed for the general population.

– KAMS IL (KAMS Independent Living): Specifically created for individuals aged 65 and older.

2. Number of Movements Assessed

– KAMS: Includes a total of 12 movements

– KAMS IL: Includes a total of 8 movements.

3. Types of Movements Assessed

KAMS:

– Back flexion and extension
– Back lateral flexion (right and left)
– Overhead squat
– Reverse lunge (right and left)
– Posture angel
– Balance (right and left)
– Vertical jump (right and left)

KAMS IL:

– Excludes the overhead squat, single leg balance, and vertical jump test, as these can be challenging for older adults. Instead, it includes:

– MCTSIB Assessment: A comprehensive balance test.

– Five-Times Sit-to-Stand Test: An evaluation of lower body strength and endurance.


Benefits of Having Two Separate Assessments

By offering both KAMS and KAMS IL assessments, clinicians can:

– Tailor Assessments to Different Populations: Ensure that the evaluation is appropriate for the individual’s age and physical capabilities.

-Gather Essential Information: Obtain detailed insights into body dysfunctions, regardless of the patient’s age, allowing for the creation of proactive rehabilitation measures.

Having specialized assessments like KAMS and KAMS IL ensures that we can provide the best possible care and targeted interventions for diverse populations. Whether you are assessing a younger individual or someone aged 65 and older, both tools offer valuable data to support effective rehabilitation and performance improvement.
