WORK WITH POSAS 3.0
The POSAS can be used free of charge by researchers without commercial interest. We do, however, request a fee for commercial use of the POSAS (i.e. involvement of a manufacturer/supplier in the study) in order to maintain the POSAS website and continue the development of the POSAS.
The introduction of the Patient and Observer Scar Assessment Scale (POSAS) in 2004 was a turning point in the assessment of scars through the use of scales. The POSAS was the first scale to take into account both the patient and provider perspective.
