The Clinical Outcome Measures Electronic Toolkit (COMET ©) provides a database of validated outcome measures geared towards prosthesis and orthosis users and practitioners.COMET simplifies and standardizes the use of outcome measures in daily clinical practice to inform evidence-based clinical care. Practitioners using COMET are able to easily select the appropriate measure, administer a test, and immediately receive the result.
Using COMET, practitioners can:
- Justify and document effectiveness of P&O treatments
- Select and set order of outcome measures to complete
- Easily record and score treatment outcome measures
- Export PDFs to include in medical records
Using it is easy! Start by selecting one or multiple outcome measures for your patient to complete. After your patient completes the measures, COMET instantly calculates the scores and automatically generates a results report that can be exported as a PDF for inclusion in the electronic patient health record or where external documents are supported or needed.
It includes timed metrics such as the Timed Up and Go, patient-reported outcomes such as the Socket Comfort Score and Lower Extremity Functional Scale, and surveys such as the Patient Satisfaction Questionnaire.
COMET was developed by Orthocare Innovations, LLC in collaboration with AOPA and with the support of a Center for Orthotic and Prosthetic Learning and Outcomes/Evidence-Based Practice (COPL) Pilot Grant.
