Plastic Goniometer



A plastic goniometer  is useful for measuring joint range of motion. This information can be used by a therapist for:

  • Determining the presence of muscle, tendon or joint dysfunction (e.g. as a result of a knee sprain, for example);
  • Diagnosing the underlying condition;
  • Developing goals for treating the condition (i.e. how fast normal joint range of motion should return);
  • Evaluating the progress the patient is making during recovery (is the joint range of motion actually improving?);
  • Decide on a new treatment strategy if the original strategy isn’t working.

Plastic goniometers can also be used to measure angles when designers are fabricating an orthosis to treat a specific joint dysfunction.
