What do you dislike?
Sometimes, the outcome measures will ask questions that are far outside the norm of what a client is performing on a day to day basis. It will ask a client that is 65+ or a client in a wheelchair about running or jumping, which are sometimes activities that have not been performed in several years. It would be nice if there was a way they could leave off those questions until later into the survey if they started answering questions that alluded to the fact that they are physically active and then ask it appropriately.

Recommendations to others considering the product:
Besides taking a course with someone who is trained with FOTO, it is also beneficial to take some of their webinars that they offer to clinicians in order to further learn how to personalize the outcome system for each client. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Sometimes, the client will answer the final questions of patient specific functional scale (PSFS) wrong; they will answer it as if the activities are on the pain scale, thus reversing the normal scale. In order to fix it, the client will get a briefing on how to answer it appropriately. If not, they will fill out the survey with a clinician without bias in order to make sure that it is filled out correctly. If it is not filled out right, it does impact their initial score.
