Dear All

I am a physio, about to start a research phd, looking at a connective tissue arthritic group. It is believed the children are hypermobile and the adults become prematurely arthritic.



I am looking therefore to examine the end of joint range of movement of this group and compare them to a normal population. Measurement tools need to be portable and I am hoping that the investigation of normal end range of joint movements have been already done. Could you suggest anywhere in the biomechanical world where I can start my digging and cut some corners/internet time. Anything on normal joint range of movement, especially end of functional ranges and hypermobility in the same dimensions would be ideal.

Your help would be very much appreciated.

Warm Regards Kevin Reese PT UK
