⧉ Terminology for Newcomers

Impairment is “a significant deviation, loss, or loss of use of any body structure or function in an individual with a health condition, disorder, or disease.”

Impairment differs from the concept of disability, which is “an umbrella term for activity limitations and/or participation restrictions in an individual with a health condition, disorder, or disease.”

Impairment evaluation refers to the “acquisition, recording, and reporting of medical evidence, using a standard method such as described in the Guides to determine permanent impairment associated with a physical or mental condition.” The result is…

…an impairment rating, a “consensus-derived percentage estimate of the loss of activity, which reflects the severity of impairment for a given health condition, and the degree of associated limitations in terms of Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).” —AMA Guides, Sixth Edition, Glossary
