Abstract

Obesity, particularly with early onset and severe degree, imposes function limitations in different areas. We need appropriate assessment tools to identify and evaluate the obesity-related disability. Generally, tests of physical and cardiorespiratory performance (FIM, 6MWT, dyspnoea score, sub-maximal exercise test), score of daily life activities (ADL o IADL), and quality of life (SF36, IWQL) are used. However, these instruments have not been specifically developed for obese patients and cover only a part of the complex disability that is associated with this condition, thus underestimating the disability risk profile. In the last years, a reference classification of disability (ICF) proposed by WHO has been used also in obesity. Areas such as mobility, self-care, handling stress, and social relationships appear hindered. Recently, an obesity-specific disability questionnaire (TSD-OC) has been validated against other standard tools and linked with ICF. A correct identification and evaluation of functional, psychological, and social limitations/disability secondary to obesity might promote long-term successful rehabilitation intervention to reduce the impact of this disease.
