The most widely used standardized clinical method of measuring available joint ROM is goniometry, with units given in degrees. Consequently, we typically will use degrees in this text to identify angular displacements (rotatory motions). ROM may be measured and stored on computer for analysis by an electrogoniometer or a three-dimensional motion analysis system, but these are available predominantly in research environments.

When a person grasps or leans on another object (or another person), that object (or person) becomes part of the BoS. In Figure 1-24, the football player’s BoS now includes not only his left toes but also all the space between his supporting foot and the wall he is leaning against. If the football player moves his head, arms, and trunk around, he will shift the location of the CoM as these segments are rearranged. However, he will remain stable as long as the LoG projecting from the CoM remains somewhere within the extended BoS.

The combined CoM for these two segments in anatomic position remains at S2 because the position of the body is the same as in Figure 1-20. When the trunk is inclined forward, however, the point at which the mass of the body appears to be concentrated shifts forward. The new CoM is on a line between the original two CoMs and is located toward the heavier 01Levengie(F)-01 05/14/2005 3:43 PM Page 17 Copyright © 2005 by F. A. Davis.
