Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This study compared reliability recordings of shoulder ranges of motion using goniometer and VR methods. The results of this study demonstrate that the use of VR can be a reliable clinical tool equal or superior to goniometer methods currently used for examinations. These results have implications for OT curricular changes in the future.
