Arm Reachable Workspace Software

Nives Klopčar has kindly made her Arm Reachable Workspace (ARW) software available for download.

ARW is a computer aided tool that enables understandable, uniform and objective patient arm functionality evaluation during upper extremity treatment. Input data to the ARW program are subject height, shoulder ranges of motion (flexion, retroflexion, abduction, adduction, external and internal rotation) and elbow flexion range.

ARW program gives numerical and graphical results. Therefore, based on arm reachable workspace volume, graphics and orientation with respect to the body, the therapist can observe patient improvement, evaluate recovery, predict the arm functionality for normal life or work, and also objectively compare different patients.
