- Pelvic Floor Dysfunction,
- Activities-specific Balance Confidence (ABC Scale),
- Abbreviated ABC Scale,
- Stroke Impact Scale,
- Pain Disability Index (PDI–7),
- NeuroQOL Upper Extremity,

- Activities of Daily Living (ADL).
Judy Holder, FOTO Director of Account Development stated, “The inclusion of G-codes and severity modifiers calculated for these additional assessments provides more options for functional limitation reporting and the clinical decision-making process. Having all the needed information automatically and immediately at hand will help the clinician efficiently make decisions regarding reporting G-Codes and severity modifiers and will also assist in documenting the process.”
