One of the questions we often get is how using EasyAngle compares to using a CROM device, or iPhone or Android apps. Sebastian Köcker -Universitätsklinikum Freiburg- evaluated practicability and accordance of these devices and the result was a grand slam for EasyAngle ! EasyAngle was assessed "very practical" by 82% (55 of 67 users) , compared to the iPhone apps 0,5% (1 of 67) or the CROM device 0% (0 of 67). The study showed a standard deviation of 3.3° for EasyAngle, compared to 9.9° for the iPhone and 3.8° for the CROM device.
A recently concluded clinical study in Germany revealed that EasyAngle ranked highly in terms of accuracy and practicability when compared to the CROM device and the iPhone app. The study was led by Sebastian Köcker at Universätsklinikum Freiburg, and compares the EasyAngle, an iPhone app and the CROM device with regards to usability and accordance. It is also the first study on EasyAngle conducted outside Sweden. Today, the development of physiotherapy into a more academic profession requires the development of tools that enable standardised measurements. In particular, objective measurement on the cervical spine is still difficult in clinical practice. Currently, the CROM device is often [...]
A study on EasyAngle, led by Veronika Lind at the Stockholm School of Sports and Health Sciences (GIH) was presented at the World Congress for Physiotherapy (WCPT) in South Africa recently. The study investigates the intra-rater reliability and validity of EasyAngle for measurement of active and passive flexion and extension in the knee. It has since attracted considerable attention within physiotherapy research and contributes to the base of clinical evidence for EasyAngle.
