Table 2 Comparison of maximum available ROM (Max) and maximum used ROM in performing ADLs (ADL)

From: Motion patterns in activities of daily living: 3- year longitudinal follow-up after total shoulder arthroplasty using an optical 3D motion analysis system

  Patients preoperative Patients 3y postoperative Controls
  Max ADL Max ADL Max ADL
Flexion 124° 135° 163° 131° 168° 139°
Extension 19° 34°* 35° 53°* 29° 63°*
Abduction 47° 33° 101° 76° 113° 118°
Adduction 11° 27°* 73° 35° 36° 37°
  1. Max = maximum available ROM. ADL = maximum used ROM performing the four ADLs. (*) indicates a significant higher ROM in ADL in comparison to the maximum available static ROM.
