Baseline® Absolute Axis 360 Degree HiRes Clear Plastic 12 inch Goniometer
The integral absolute vertical and horizontal levels are permanently incorporated into the Baseline® absolute axis 360 degree HiRes clear plastic goniometer. Many goniometric measurements require one arm of the goniometer to be positioned either horizontally or vertically. The other arm is then lined-up with the patient’s body part. Until now, the practitioner had to “assume” or “eyeball” the vertical or horizontal position. This interpolation is often incorrect and introduces measurement error. The Absolute+Axis (AA)goniometer removes the “assume” and “eyeball” by establishing a “true” vertical or horizontal. The Absolute+Axis goniometer removes measurement variability and allows the practitioner to concentrate on correct placement of the other goniometer arm and the patient’s body position. Some measurements the AA goniometer is designed to improve are: shoulder and hip rotation (internal, external); cervical flexion, extension, rotation and side bending; hamstring flexibility; and active ROM.
