Proposal Description

Public Comments


International Academy of Independent Medical Evaluators

The words “with normal motion” be removed from all sections in which it appears in Tables 15-2, 15-3, 15-4, and 15-5; elimination of the footnote from the DBI tables that says: “*If motion loss is present, this impairment may alternatively be assessed using Section 15.7, Range of Motion Impairment. A range of motion impairment stands alone and is not combined with diagnosis impairment.”

Revision of section 15-7 (and 15-3b) to reinforce DBI as preferred method, but, when presented with decreased ROM, a rater can consider that as an alternative method when the impairment isn’t able to be rated with the DBI paradigm.
