180 Degree S.S. Goniometer (8 inch)
The 180 Degree S.S. Goniometer (8 inch) is hinged measuring tool which can be used by medical practitioners to accurately measure the range of motion in a patient's joint. This goniometer consists of a protractor, and two 180° scales that read in opposing directions, and which increase in 1° increments.
Who Can Use the 8" Goniometer?
Often found in the offices of physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals working with joints, goniometers measure the angles a patient is able to old their joints at, which in turn can aid in diagnosis and treatment of certain joint conditions. For example, it may be used by:
