The LIFEwareSM System was developed specifically for outpatient treatment settings and built on the results of careful clinical and statistical analysis. It is based on a 2-year study of 7,000 rehabilitation assessments. To ensure the tool’s sensitivity, its developers used a statistical tool called Rasch analysis. This tool calibrates patient responses so that even slight improvements in a patient’s condition can be detected and reported. Currently, the LIFEware® database includes over one million assessments. Using the LIFEwareSM System is a very simple and easy way to consistently, validly and reliably measure your treatment outcomes.
