Intended Population[edit | edit source]

The objective of the HAGOS questionnaire was to achieve a quantitative measure in a young to middle-aged physically active patient who had hip and/or groin disability. HAGOS uses the framework of ICF in the questionnaire and thus looks at patients with a hip and/or groin disabilities by relation to impairments, activity limitation and participation restrictions. [1] For a patient to be considered physically active, they need to be active for at least 2.5 hours per week. [2]
