Scoring: For scoring the FJS-12, all responses are summed (never, 0 points; almost never, 1 point; seldom, 2 points;
sometimes, 3 points; mostly, 4 points) and then divided by the number of completed items. This mean value is
subsequently multiplied by 25 to obtain a total score range of 0 to 100. Finally, the score is subtracted from 100, to
change the direction of the final score in a way that high scores indicate a high degree of “forgetting” the artificial
joint, that is, a low degree of awareness.
If more than 4 responses are missing, the total score should not be used.
