Abstract

Patients with "high" level bilateral upper extremity deficiencies require maximum rehabilitation to increase functional independence and self-care skills. When the deficiency includes one or both shoulder joints, functional range of motion is compromised immensely. This limitation in shoulder joint range of motionreduces the overall level of function as well as the ability to perform basic activities of daily living (ADLs).
