Foot health status Questionnaire

The Foot Health Status Questionnaire (FHSQ) has filled a real need for clinicians and researchers wanting to measure foot health related quality of life. The uniqueness of the FHSQ was recognised early in its development and won a national research award in Australia. The questionnaire is  now a global research tool, translated into several different languages and used by over 200 colleagues, research labs, universities, PhD, Masters and honours students. All of whom are interested in researching foot health related quality of life.

The American Orthopaedic - AO Handbook "Musculoskeletal Outcome Measures and Instruments" by Suk, Hanson, Norvell & Helfet, published by Thieme identifies the FHSQ as the most scientifically valid foot and ankle measure of the 25 independently evaluated.
