The VISA-A scale is used to assess the clinical condition of the Achilles tendon. It is a patology-specific, reliable and validated in Italian language questionnaire. It is used for early assessment of the tendon and for monitoring possible progress during the rehabilitation process.
The VISA-A consists of 10 items divided into 3 sections: one for the pain, one for evaluating Achilles tendon function in daily life and one during sport activities. The score ranges from 0 to 100, where 0 indicates the worst condition.
