Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

This study explores the reliability of the iPhone leveling application in measuring active range of motion of the wrist and forearm in order to establish a way for a client to monitor progress in range of motion at home. The leveling application is free and located within the compass function. Goniometric and iPhone measurements were obtained and compared between the examiners and subjects. A Skype or Facetime session was conducted a week later and self-measurements were repeated and analyzed.
