For psychiatric conditions, the class of impairment should be stated, with reference to impairment ratings provided in prior editions. For Form 108, height of a plaintiff should be measured in centimeters and without shoes. If the plaintiff's height is an odd number of centimeters, the next highest even height in centimeters shall be used. Objective medical findings to support a medical diagnosis means information gained through direct observation and testing of the plaintiffs, applying objective or standardized methods.
