Abstract

The availability of a simple and reliable tool for quantitatively measuring symptom perception is surely very important in the daily practice. Especially, this concept appears to be fundamental in doctor's office and at home, where there are no adequate resources. The Visual Analogue Scale is a very simple and popular tool that could be used by anyone anywhere. The advantage given by the Visual Analogue Scale consists in the translation of a subjective sensation in an objective measure provided by numbers.
