Hi all

Just wondering if anyone knows of a validated generic tool suitable for measuring outcomes for custom made devices?

Thanks

I'm struggling on how to respond to this one. First, there's no such thing as "pre-validated" software. You have to validate as you use it in your environment. That aside, I'm a bit unclear as to the goal here. You have a custom-made device (which already likely expands the variables) and you want to measure some outcome, ostensibly in a range of possible outcomes? There are likely numerous variables that can influence the outcome (age, sex, weight, level of physical activity...)? And I presume you're looking for correlation? Or maybe I'm completely off base in which case, maybe provide more information.

Yes, you're way off mark; apologies, I haven't been clear. I didn't mention software.

Let me give an example. In psychotherapy there are lots of validated tools ('validated' as effective in measuring what they are designed to measure through research projects, that are published and peer reviewed). These tools are often a relatively simple and brief questionnaire, with the subject giving ratings to particular questions.

We make custom-made devices and accessories for people with physical disabilities.

Has anyone come across a 'generic' tool for measuring an end users satisfaction with a device, that may translate well to devices made to assist people who have disabilities?

Cheers
