    Which of the following notation systems (also known as the neutral zero method)  is the most commonly used for recording joint motion measurements?
    • A. 

      The 0- to 0-degree notation system

    • B.

  • 9. 
    Which of the following is false about passive range of motion (PROM)?
    • A. 

      There is generally more passive than active ROM available at a given joint.

    • B. 

      A patient with muscle paralysis may have no active ROM, but full passive ROM.

    • C. 

      Passive ROM is dependent on the patient's coordination and muscle strength.

    • D. 

      Passive, rather than active, ROM should be tested in goniometry.

      False

      Trauma to the joint

    • B. 

      Presence of a hereditary disorder of connective tissue

    • C. 

      Joint surface abnormalities

    • D. 

      Laxity of soft tissue structures

    • E. 

      All of the above are factors in hypermobility

  • 12. 
    Which of the following phrases accurately describes active range of motion (AROM)?
    • A. 

      The therapist may aid the patient in reaching the last 10 degrees of motion only

    • B. 

      If a patient can complete AROM easily and painlessly, further testing of that motion is usually not needed

    • C. 

      The patient must be completely relaxed to allow full AROM

    • D. 

      AROM can be carried out either voluntarily or involuntarily, as long as the motion is concentric
