Range of Motion (ROM) is measured by your surgeon or therapist using a device called a Goniometer. You can purchase one yourself online so that you can do the measuring.
A goniometer consists of two hands connected by a joint which is usually attached to a circular piece that is labeled with multiple angular measurements. It is usually made of plastic or wood. As one limb is moved towards or away from the other limb, it is dragged along the circular piece and displays a measurement. Goniometers are available in various sizes depending upon the area of application.
Medical practitioners use goniometers to measure the range of motion found in a patient’s appendage before and after treatment in order to determine if the treatment is actually improving the patient’s condition.
