FunctionMapper

micf-focus-areasFunctionMapper was designed by ICF experts using the Term Editor open-source software of the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) in Finland.

FunctionMapper can provide words, prompts, instrument items and goals linked to ICF’s functioning and environmental factors. The terms are mapped manually by experts using established ICF linking rules. The accumulation of the linkages provides useful aid when adding new information.

FunctionMapper 2.0 was completed in the first half of 2018. FunctionMapper converts a person’s natural language concepts and responses to items in assessment instruments and goals related to functioning and environmental factors in every language where mICF is to be deployed.

FunctionMapper can support all languages. It provides user-friendly terms to mICF frontend applications.
