The objective of this study was to establish the normal range of motion (ROM) of a healthy hand using built-up spoons with electrogoniometry. Statistical analysis of the data found significant differences in ROM between joints and spoon size and confirmed the hypothesis that less ROM is required to grip the utensils.
