The Foot and Ankle Ability Measure (FAAM) is a patient reported outcomes measure used to assess physical function for individuals with foot and ankle related impairments. The ADL subscale measures physical function for the activities of daily living and is scored on a scale of 0 to 84 with a score of 0 representing poor foot and ankle functioning in the activities of daily living and an 84 representing perfect foot and ankle functioning in the activities of daily living. Scores have been translated to percentages with 100% representing perfect foot and ankle health.
Baseline surveys are sent prior to the intervention for foot and ankle disability. In reviewing your physicians’ scores, you should expect to see a lower baseline score for patients followed by increasing scores with each subsequent administration point.
