Abstract

The dominant elbow joint of 24 healthy volunteers was immobilized with a functional brace in increments of 20 degrees (6 positions ranging from 30 degrees to 130 degrees). Average scores were obtained for personal care hygiene tasks (PCH), activity of daily living (ADL), and total functional scores(PCH + ADL) for each elbow flexion position. Functional scores increased with increasing elbow flexion, peaking at 110 degrees and then tapering down. Repeated-measures analysis of variance showed statistical significance, with functional scores improving with increasing elbow flexion for PCH, ADL,and PCH + ADL scores. Further pairwise comparisons for elbow position between 90 degrees and 110 degrees flexion groups demonstrated significant higher mean functional scores for ADL and combined PCH + ADL for the 110 degrees group. The results of this study support a clear advantage in subjects' upper-extremity functional abilities with the elbow immobilized at 110 degrees of flexion when dealing with normal upper-extremity joints. This angle of flexion should be considered in patients undergoing trial immobilization before an elbow arthrodesis. Copyright (C) 2001 by the American Society forSurgery of the Hand.
