Considering the ICF model, list two functional impairments and two activity limitations that V.H. experiences. 2. List one objective balance measure that you would use to measure fall risk in this patient. Why you choose that test? 3. What test would you use to help determine this personâ€™s ability to be a community ambulator? Why? 4. What standardized test could you use to measure participation (as defined in the ICF Model) or quality of life? Why would you select this test? 5.
