Norkin, Cynthia and White, Joyce. Measurement of Joint Motion, 5th edition
When performing a goniometric measurement
Position patient appropriately and drape as needed
Assess PROM and end feel
Mentally estimate range
Align goniometer: axis (fulcrum); stationary arm; movement arm
Move joint through passive range and apply overpressure; measure
Accurately record PROM findings and end feel
