Reproducibility of a 3-dimensional gyroscope in measuring shoulder anteflexion and abduction Full Text
BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, 08/01/2012
Penning LI et al. – Measurements were influenced by patient perceived pain. Differences in Disability of Arm Shoulder and Hand score (DASH) and the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) might be explained by different underlying pathology. These differences in shoulder pathology however did not alter the reproducibility of testing. The use of a tri axial gyroscope is a simple non invasive and reproducible method for the recording of shoulder anteflexion and abduction. Movements have to be repeated twice for reproducible results.
