Harris Hip Score (HHS)
What it measures:
This instrument has 10 items in 3 sections describing pain, function, range of motion, and deformity. The first section is questionnaire-based, answered by the patient, and includes impairments and activities. The second and third sections are administered by the therapist or physician, and include leg length measurement and range of motion (ROM) measures of the hip (flexion, abduction, external rotation and adduction). Each item has a unique numerical scale that corresponds to descriptive response options. The highest possible score is 100, with a higher score indicating less dysfunction.
Adults with hip impairments, especially osteoarthritis and postoperative total hip arthroplasty. (1)
