Research Interests

Comparisons of different scaling methods regarding their metric properties, the meaning of scale values and possibilities of making interindividual comparisons.

The uni- and multidimensionality of chosen perceptual concepts like, e.g., Perceived exertion, Pain, and Fatigue.

The problem of distinguishing ”rating-behavior” and context effects from perceptually interesting differences.

The use of scaling in clinical diagnostics as an instrument for discriminating between different ”groups of patients” with problems of peripheral and/or central character like, e.g., repetitive strain injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, coronary heart problems, dyspnea, irritated urinary tract, and hearing impairments.
