Top Three Reasons Why Physicians Utilize Computerized Range of Motion (ROM) & Muscle Testing on Their Patients:

1st Reason:

To fulfill American Medical Association (AMA) Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment 5th Edition protocol. Per AMA guidelines, inclinometer is the preferred device for obtaining accurate, reproducible measurements.  The Guides also state that when measuring spinal ROM, you have to use a dual inclinometer device, and you need to repeat the measurements at least three to six times per side.

To be valid, three of six consecutive measurements must lie within 5 degrees or 10% of the mean, whichever is greater.  If after six measurements inconsistency persists, the ROM measurements are not valid & the accompanying impairments can be disallowed! (Reference: AMA Guides to Evaluation of Permanent Impairment 5th Ed. Chapter 15, Pages 399, 400 & 408).

2nd Reason:

To accurately monitor amount of objective progress their patient has experienced as a result of treatment, and verify the patient's level of functional restoration

3rd Reason:

To get more accurate test results, which translates into better patient evaluations, diagnosis and treatment planning. Recent medical research has proven that inclinometers and computerized apparatus used in strength testing are more accurate and precise than the conventional manual testing or "eyeballing" technique.
