This tool measures joint health, in the domain of body structure and function (i.e. impairment), of the joints most commonly affected by bleeding in hemophilia – knees, ankles, elbows.
It is primarily designed for adults and children with established arthropathy. It may be used when there is a need for orthopedic intervention, or as an outcome measure of physiotherapy interventions.
