Introduction[edit | edit source]

A number of PT standards are related to the rehab cycle of an individual patient or service user.

It is advised to apply the ICF-Model for rehab cycle and for any intervention with a rehabilitation user. Click HERE for more information and for an e-learning module on ICF visit this LINK.

Outcome Measures[edit | edit source]

Outcomes measures for an individual user must be chosen according to their health condition and rehabilitation goals. There are generic outcome measures that should be performed with each user. We advise to use the WHODAS for this purpose.

For more consistency we also advise a few simple outcomes measures for the following health conditions and clinical pictures :

  • Lower limb conditions (due to amputation, fracture, stroke, incomplete SCI, Polio, old age, etc.)
  • Upper limb conditions (due to amputation, fracture, stroke etc.)

Note - You are encouraged to individually select and use additional outcome measures for and with each user. Remember: measuring outcome is not a goal in itself (it's the outcome that counts, not the measuring) – keep it short and simple!
