JK Olsen et al. have tested the reliability of pain assessment with this new tool. Inter-rater and intra-rater reliabilities were all above the defined cutt off 0.75 for excellent results. The DoloCuff is now in production and has a great potential for systematic follow-up on sensitivity to pain, on both an individual basis and group wise. The article is accepted in Pain Pratice.
