Ongoing & Planned Studies

Meloq provides support for international researchers and physiotherapists who are interested in conducting clinical studies about EasyAngle.

To date, there have been 4 completed studies and 13 planned studies throughout the world.

Neck

  • Investigation of validity and reliability of the EasyAngle for measurement of cervical rotation during flexion. multicenter study (University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf, City University of Applied Sciences Bremen and multiple private practices in Germany and Austria.), Germany (expected done 2018)
  • Investigation in feasibility of using the EasyAngle for children/infants with torticollis and inter and intra rater reliability for measurement of cervical spine and shoulder. Cindy Miles & Associates, USA (expected done 2017)

Shoulder

  • Assessment of shoulder range of motion in wheel chair athletes using the Easy Angle. UZ Gent, Belgium (expected done 2018)
  • Investigation of validity and reliability of the EasyAngle for measurement of shoulder rotation and elevation. UZ Gent, Belgium (expected done 2018)
  • Investigation in feasibility of using the EasyAngle for children/infants with torticollis and inter and intra rater reliability for measurement of cervical spine and shoulder. Cindy Miles & Associates, USA (expected done 2017)
  • Neurophysiologic influences on Hamstring and Pectoralis major flexibility – knowledge about the relative contribution of neural, muscular and joint components to facilitate new techniques in the rehabilitation of groin and shoulder pain. Examination of relative stiffness and muscle length by measuring joint angles using the EasyAngle. Umeå University, Sweden (expected done 2018).

Hip

  • Investigation of validity and intra- and inter-rater reliability for measurements on cervical spine and hip performed as a part of BATH Metrical Index, BASMI in patients with ankylosing spondylitis and for measurement of hip extension in patients with hip replacement surgery. Karolinska University Hospital, Sweden (expected done 2018)
  • Investigation of usability, validity and intra- and inter-rater reliability for measurement of knee and hip using the EasyAngle. CRF La Châtaigneraie, France (expected done 2018)

Knee

  • Investigation of usability, validity and intra- and inter-rater reliability for measurement of knee and hip using the EasyAngle. CRF La Châtaigneraie, France (expected done 2018)
  • Investigation of inter- and intra-rater reliability of EasyAngle for measurement of knee ROM. Karolinska Institute, Sweden (finalized, to be presented).

Ankle

  • The effect of non-invasive treatment methods on neuromuscular function in healthy people and in stroke patients. Ankle ROM is measured using the EasyAngle and a qualitative reliability investigation will be included in the study. University of Jyväskylä, Finland. (expected done 2018)

Others

  • Understanding the status of goniometry in UK and how it can be improved by the EasyAngle – a survey study. South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, UK (expected done 2017)
  • Technical verification of the sensor accuracy of the EasyAngle, Osnabruck University, Germany (expected done 2017)
  • Investigation of relationship between hamstring, gastrocnemius and rectus femoris muscle length and static and dynamic feet pressures in children with cerebral palsy. University of Juiz de Fora, Brazil (expected done 2018)
  • Neurophysiologic influences on Hamstring and Pectoralis major flexibility – knowledge about the relative contribution of neural, muscular and joint components to facilitate new techniques in the rehabilitation of groin and shoulder pain. Examination of relative stiffness and muscle length by measuring joint angles using the EasyAngle. Umeå University, Sweden (expected done 2018).
