measuring scale

This site presents a set of evaluation scales specifically designed to be used in rehabilitation.

Université catholique de Louvain

Each scale defined below was developed in Unité de réadaptation et de médecine physique, Université catholique de Louvain, using the Rasch measurement model. This model provides a method to convert the raw scores obtained from a questionnaire into a linear measure located on a unidimensional scale.

The place of these scales in the health process can be determined using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health proposed by the World Health Organization (WHO, 2001).
