Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

the spin,it is made of a sequence of red circles, and is designed to avoid the use of numbers, it promotes clarity for patients with visual impairments.Most professionals  prefer using an ordinal scale to the continuous VAS. others  find numbers easier to use whereas others found the SPIN more helpful.  the SPIN gives a reliable measure of pain intensity in patients fully able to communicate their views and experiences. Investigation in patients with cognitive or communication impairments is then neccessary.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
