Contribution of a patient’s insight about their health situation aids in revamping the treatments. Patient-reported outcome measures or PROMs gauge a patient’s point of view through questionnaires. The knee joint, being a more liable human part to suffer an injury, had been considered well by clinicians all around. There had been the introduction of numerous knee function measuring tools that could be either patient or clinician-administered. This article focuses on six patient-relevant outcome measures that are being used in various clinical as well as research contexts. This includes the IKDC Rating Scale, Oxford Knee Score, Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC), Knee Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), Knee Outcome Survey- Activities of Daily Living (KOS-ADL) Scale and MARX Activity Rating Scale (MARS).
