The purpose of this study was to quantify active ROM required for individuals with rheumatoid arthritis using built-up spoons with electrogoniometry. Statistical analysis provided quantitative evidence supporting our hypothesis that using a built-up handle requires less active ROM for grasp. Clinical implications suggest that built-up handles may be used for other conditions with limited hand and wrist ROM, not just RA, increasing participation and independence in daily activities.
