Outcome measures

Peter Kyberd

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


The ability to measure the performance of the user, or their prosthetic limb, is key to being able to track the progress of an individual, the result of an intervention, or the impact of a change in the design of the device. Properly designed, such tools can be useful both for treatment and in research. However, to ensure a meaningful result, the aim of a particular measurement must direct the form of the assessment.
