Barolin, G. S.
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v20 n4 p393-96 Dec 1997
This paper discusses the need to internationalize evaluation measures; unify criteria for rehabilitation scales; and refine the definitions of impairment, disability, and handicap. A model based on the International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities and Handicap (ICIDH) scales is presented, depicting the components of somatogenesis, psychodynamics, and social factors and their evolution over time in impairment, disability, and handicap.
