[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to establish the reliability and validity of the Korean-translated version of the Lower Limb Functional Index (LLFI) in the assessment of patients with lower-limb disorders. [Subjects and Methods] Fifty-six subjects with lower-limb disorders, 24 men and 32 women, participated in this study. Reliability was determined by using the intra-class correlation coefficient and Cronbach’s α for internal consistency. Validity was examined by correlating the LLFI scores with the Lower Extremity Functional Scale (LEFS) and Short Form 36 (SF-36) scores. [Results] The test-retest reliability was 0.95. The criterion-related validity was established through a comparison with the Korean versions of the LEFS and SF-36. [Conclusion] The Korean version of the LLFI was shown to be a reliable and valid instrument for assessing lower-limb complaints.
