The Borg CR-Scales® are the best methods for determining the intensity of most kinds of experiences from simple sensory perception to more complex subjective symptoms, emotions and feelings of mental load and difficulty. Simple category scales with verbal or pictorial anchors, or the VAS have not equally good metric properties for determining both direct levels and S-R –functions. Because of many international misuses causing erroneous results in clinical diagnostics, therapy, rehabilitation “prescription” and advices for exercise and difficulties in daily activities (“loads”), the company has had to get expensive legal help including trademark and control of correct usages.  All contacts and services are now handled by Borg Perception.
