Description

In physical & occupational therapy and in sports science, a goniometer is an instrument which measures an axis and range of motion. The instrument is a degree scale (like a protractor) with arms that can be aligned with the position of the extremity and the angle measured in reference to a base line. If a patient or athlete experiences decreased range of motion in a joint (e.g. a knee or elbow), the tester can use a goniometer to assess what the range of motion is prior to intervention, and then make sure the intervention is working in subsequent assessments. This Goniometer 180 Degrees can be used to measure & evaluate the following:- Outline of range of movement tests that can be performed with a Goniometer Italicised items would be better evaluated with a large goniometer    Neck Flexion & Extension Trunk Flexion & Extension Trunk Rotation Elevation of Pelvis Hip Flexion & Extension Hip Abduction & Adduction Hip Lateral Rotation Hip Medial rotation Knee Flexion & Extension Shoulder Flexion & Extension Shoulder Abduction Shoulder lateral rotation Shoulder medial rotation Elbow Flexion & Extension Forearm Supination & Pronation Wrist Flexion & Extension Finger Abduction & Adduction Flexion & Extension of metacarpophalangeal joints of fingers   Flexion of proximal and distal interphalangeal joints of fingers   Flexion & Extension of metacarpophalangeal and interphalangeal joints of thumb Thumb adduction & abduction   Ankle Plantar & Dorsi  Flexion Foot dorsiflexion and inversion Foot inversion & eversion Flexion of metatarsophalangeal joints of toes Flexion of interphalangeal joints of toes Extension of metatarsophalangeal joints of toes and interphalangeal joint of hallux Key Features: Pocket sized measurement device: Readily transported Versatile: Measures a wide array of joint motions Lightweight plastic construction: Durability Box Includes: Goniometer 180 Degrees Technical Specification: Dimensions: : 17cm Range of Units: : Degrees to 180 Accuracy: : To /- 1 degree Unsure if this goniometer 180 degrees version is right for you?
