- In occupational therapy and physiotherapy, a goniometer is an instrument that measures an axis and range of motion.
- If a patient or client is suffering from decreased range of motion in a joint (e.g. a knee or elbow), the therapist can use a goniometer to assess what the range of motion is prior to intervention, and then make sure the intervention is working by using the goniometer in subsequent interventions.
- Made out of clear plastic, the goniometer allows you to place the device directly on a joint or limb for easy observation of the joint’s axis of motion and range of motion.
- 360 degrees of coverage in 1-degree increments to ensure International Standards of Measurement (ISOM) accuracy.
