Significant positive correlations were found between the GAT score and the duration of morning stiffness, VAS-pain during ADL, VAS-stiffness, finger flexion deficit of dominant hand, DAS28, HAQ, AIMS2
hand/finger function subscale, and DHI, (r=0.
These were: AIMS2, AIMS2-SF, ASES, WOMAC, KOOS and the Lequesne Index for Osteoarthritis of the Knee.
The study found that while pain measures were sensitive to change, the two specific arthritis outcome measures, the WOMAC and AIMS2 were not.
As a result of industry trends and exposure that AIMS2
received during the Technology Partnerships evaluation, the device is developing a user base at highway agencies and among aggregate producers in the United States and abroad.
