Visual Analogue Scales


Once the user has recorded the joint scoring and clicked on the ‘next’ button on the DAS page, the user comes to the Visual Analogue Scales for recording the global assessments and pain assessment, as indicated in the diagram below


The default position of the pointer on the scale is at 5, however the scale does not record any score until it is activated. The user activates the scale in one of two ways:

  1. User clicks on the desired score directly on the scale - the arrow will automatically reposition and the score is recorded
  2. User selects the pointer and moves it by sliding to the appropriate position

The user should then save the information by clicking the save button.
