Commercial Use

You have indicated that you are interested in using the Wong-Baker FACES® Pain Rating Scale in your commercial product. Please read the following information and submit the form below. We will get back to you with the next steps in this process.

Following is a brief review of some of the basics about our scale:

  • The FACES Scale is recommended for people ages three and older, not just for children.
  • Our scale is a self-assessment tool for physical pain only. We do not give permission for use in measuring emotions, moods, comfort, etc.
  • The patient needs to be able to understand the instructions and select a face that illustrates the pain he/she is experiencing. It should never be used with unresponsive patients or to compare the patient’s face to the scale to determine the level of pain.
  • No modifications should be made to this scale without our expressed permission. We are intentional about not adding color to our scale because colors are so subjective. If you see a scale with color added, that is a copyright infringement.

For more information, see our Frequently Asked Questions document.
