Abstract

With the increase of evidence-based practice, the registration and dissemination of the assessment data, became more and more important. In paediatric rehabilitation those procedures are particularly important since they allow for an initial characterization of the clinical situation, to compare results in different assessment moments and to disseminate the evaluation outcomes. However, in several kinds of evaluation, data registration is a complex and slow process. Similarly, the comparison of raw score to standard score can be very time consuming. To minimize that challenge it is important to develop a digital system that makes the registration fast and objective. The main purpose of this paper is to present VMSReport: an application to registrate visuomotor performance data, visual perception, as well as and motor coordination, in children aged 2 years and older. That digital tool allows also to compare results between various moments of assessment and can automatically generate a report for each evaluation. It also builds a database, which facilitates the process of global data analysis and modelling. This tool was developed in a clinical environment, giving clear answers to requests from rehabilitation caregivers. A pilot study, with 10 children, has already been carried out. The VMSReport can now be used.
