Table 1 Calculation of the SMoS based on the primary gait metrics of WS and DSC

From: Proposed objective scoring algorithm for walking performance, based on relevant gait metrics: the Simplified Mobility Score (SMoS™)—observational study

Walking speed (WS) Daily step count (DSC)
WS (v) Points (A) DSC Points (B)
v < 1.35 m/s (v/1.35) × 50 DSC < 10,000 (DSC/10,000) × 50
v > 1.35 m/s 50 DSC > 10,000 50
SMoS = A + B
