Abstract

Background: Functional range of motion is defined as the required range of motions for individuals to maintain maximal independence, along with optimal conditions for activities of daily living. Intervention plans for rehabilitation are directed towards the acquisition of anatomical range of motion. However, this isn't always possible based on person's etiology, prognosis, or severity of disease.
