The Absolute Visual Analogue Scale (AVAS) as a Measure of Pain Intensity

M Zusman. Aust J Physiother.

Abstract

Research in physiotherapy often necessitates measurement of the intensity of clinical pain. Numerous methods have been devised, and recommended for this purpose. However, many are time consuming and unnecessarily complex both to carry out and to analyse. The absolute visual analogue scale (AVAS) is a simple and adequate measure of pain intensity.
