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 Small Goniometer measures 20 cm and is 360°. It can be used to measure and evaluate the following:-

  • Outline range of movement tests that can be performed with a Goniometer
