Prosthetics & Orthotics: Outcome

"An outcome measure is a tool used to assess a patient’s current status[1]. Outcome measures may provide a score, an interpretation of results and at times a risk categorization of the patient. Prior to providing any intervention, an outcome measure provides baseline data. The initial results may help determine the course of treatment intervention. Once treatment has commenced, the same tool may be used in serial assessments to determine whether the patient has demonstrated change." definition from
