CROM Deluxe R.O.M.
Get Expert Advice
The CROM is lightweight and takes only minutes to make objective and repeatable measurements. Combines fluid-damped inclinometers and magnets in an easy-to-use instrument to provide accurate, objective measurements of suboccipital flexion and extension, cervical flexion and extension, lateral flexion and rotation, and forward head motion. The CROM eliminates the positioning, zeroing and tracking errors associated with stand-alone Inclinometers. If the device is positioned to the nose and ears, it eliminates substantial error (10% or more) common in stand alone inclinometer placement. The CROM, secured to the head, eliminates tracking errors.
The Deluxe selection extras are the forward head unit, deluxe case and foam, an extra nosepiece, and tape measure.
- Suboccipital flexion and extension
- Cervical flexion and extension
- Lateral flexion and rotation
- Forward head motion
The CROM Features
- Comfortable frame adjusts exactly to patient's head and is secured with Velcro™ straps
- Positions easily and securely like sunglasses
- Examiner's hands remain free to guide patient's movements
- The CROM Utilizes inclinometers
- Inclinometers are required by the AMA Guide To The Evaluation Of Permanent Impairment Fourth Edition
- Separate Inclinometers are used for sagittal and lateral planes to eliminate relocation during measurements
- Inclinometers are preset to frame eliminating zeroing time and errors
- A compass allows rotation measurements to be made in preferred upright positions measurements
- By using nose bridge and seventh cervical vertebra as landmarks, forward head measurements are repeatable
- A magnetic references makes fast, accurate readings possible with reference to the shoulder
