In this study, the Manchester Foot Pain and Disability Index (MFPDI) was translated, and the resulting translation was analyzed for reliability and validity. It was hoped that the MFPDI could be an effective instrument to evaluation the older adults with foot disability, which will become a reference for older adults care plans for people with disabling conditions. The methods of this study employed the Process of Translation and Adaptation of Instruments developed by World Health Organization to translate MFPDI and conducted expert validity and internal reliability during the process. Upon the completion of the traditional Chinese version of the MFPDI, this study recruited subjects over 65 years old from living communities and residential institutions in order to re-examine internal reliability and conduct alternative reliability, criterion validity, and construction validity. Finally, this study explored the difference in levels of foot disability between the older adults subjects in living communities and residential institutions. The results showed that the traditional Chinese MFPDI fulfilled the requirements for good reliability and validity. The Cronbach α of internal reliability on full scale and subscales (function, pain intensity, and appearance) were 0.973, 0.961, 0.928 and 0.977 respectively. The prevalence of foot disability for the older adults overall is 61.6%, but 51.7% and 84.2% in the living communities and residential institutions respectively. In conclusion, this study developed the traditional Chinese MPFDI and also offered researchers and clinical workers as an evaluation instrument for such translations. The results implied that we ought to develop guidelines of foot health for the older adults, which could in turn become a guide for primary care workers in order to provide care and delay deterioration.
