Oxford Knee Score-OKS PDF - Overview
The Oxford Knee Score-OKS in high quality, It is a 12-item patient-reported Pro specifically designed and developed to assess function and pain after total knee replacement (TKR) surgery (arthroplasty). It is short, reproducible, valid and sensitive to clinically important changes.
The original evaluation of Oxford Knee Score-OKS was as that each of the 12 answers are assigned the previously defined number of points. They range from 1 – least difficult to 5 – most difficult, The 12 ratings are then added together to give a total score used to assess the patient. The possible total score ranges from 12 to 60 points. Here, a low score (e.g. 12 points) indicates good outcomes and vice versa.
Because of misunderstandings concerning this, the right holders proposed a different system where response points range from 0 to 4 with a total score range from 0 to 48. Here, a high score (e.g. 48) indicates satisfactory joint function and vice versa.
