Lesson Overview

Teacher Overview:

● I will be able to define, explain and correctly use key goniometer terms.

● I will understand that flexibility is specific to each joint and can be described as the range of motion (ROM) about that joint.

● I will be able to perform ROM measurement of Supine shoulder flexion, supine shoulder external rotation at 90 degrees of abduction and Seated Knee flexion

Lesson Phases

Demonstrate and Explain Use of Goniometer

Why is standard goniometer placement necessary?

Supine Shoulder Flexion

How does your active shoulder flexion ROM compare with the expected AROM?

Supine shoulder External Rotation at 90 deg/90 degrees

How does your measured shoulder Ext. Rotation compare with the expected ROM?
