The Assessment of Life Habits Scale, or LIFE-H, is an instrument developed to measure the accomplishment of life habits and identify the handicap situations experienced. Life habits are habits that ensure survival and development of a person in society throughout life and handicap situation is a disturbance in the accomplishment of a person's life habits.


There have been three studies reporting the psychometric properties of the LIFE-H. Test-retest reliability is excellent for the LIFE-H Short Form for adults (ICC=0.83), adequate for the LIFE-H Short form for children (ICC=0.67), adequate for the LIFE-H total for adults (ICC=0.74), and adequate for the LIFE-H total for children (ICC=0.73). Correlation of the LIFE-H is excellent with the CHART-Physical Independence subscale (Spearman’s r=0.89), adequate with the CHART-Occupation subscale (Spearman’s r=0.36), adequate with the CHART-Mobility subscale (Spearman’s r=0.33), and poor with the CHART-Social integration subscale (Spearman’s r=0.14). No responsiveness values or floor/ceiling effects values in the LIFE-H were reported for the SCI population.
