Rehab scales



Rehab scales

Arsalis has also acquired expertise in PROMs development for the assessment of patients’ function in clinical practice and research for various pathologies. Our approach utilizes the state-of-the-art outcome measures, the Rasch measurement, to ensure the highest standards of accuracy in patient assessment.

The Rehab-scales web site has been developed in the late 1990's at Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain), in the lab of rehabilitation by a group of researchers specialized in the assessment of rehabilitation outcomes. Recently, the Rehab-scales web site has been further developed in collaboration with Haute Ecole Louvain en Hainaut (HELHa).

All Rehab-scales have been developed with the Rasch model, a state-of-the-art item response model that allows continuous, linear and unidimensional functional measurement along the patient follow-up. The scales are developed to cover a wide range of pathologies as of outcomes meaningful to rehabilitation. All Rehab-scales can be used free of charge for daily clinical practice and research and have been translated in more than 70 different languages. A license is required to use any Rehab-scale in a clinical trial or in a commercial application. The licenses are distributed by Arsalis SRL, a spin-off of our university lab. Many members of the lab are now teaching rehabilitation and outcome measurement at UCLouvain and HELHa or in other high schools.
