 German term or phrase: Normal-0-Methode/Neutral-0-Methode Gonarthrose/Coxarthrose: Das Bewegungsausmaß (des Gelenks) wurde nach der Normal-0-Methode ermittelt. - Die Beeinflussung der Gelenkfunktion wurde mittels der Neutral-0-Methode verfolgt. Beide Methoden-Bezeichnungen werden synonym verwendet.

 English translation:Normal Zero/Neutral Zero Method Explanation:Neutral Zero Method as described by Caves and Roberts in 1936 (2). All motions of a joint are measured from defined zero starting point positions. The degrees of motion of a joint are added in the direction the joint moves from the zero starting position. The extended "anatomical position" of an extremity is accepted as zero degrees rather than as 180 degrees. Motions are described as active or passive. Active motion is the patient's movement of the joint through a specified arc of motion. Passive motion is the examiner's movement of the joint through a special fled arc of motion. A distinction is made between the terms extension and hyperextension. Extension is the natural motion opposite to flexion at the zero starting position. This is present in wrist and shoulder joints. If, however, the motion opposite to flexion at the zero starting position is an unnatural one, such as that of the elbows or knees, it is referred to as hyperextension. Limitation of joint motion is described simply. An example of a limitation of joint motion is an elbow that can only be flexed from 30 degrees (above 0 deb./neutral) to 90 degrees (above 0 deb./neutral). Normal ROM is 0 degrees to 150 degrees. http://www.oandp.org/jpo/library/1993_02_049.asp good luck

Normal Zero/Neutral Zero Method

Explanation:
Neutral Zero Method as described by Caves and Roberts in 1936 (2).
All motions of a joint are measured from defined zero starting point positions. The degrees of motion of a joint are added in the direction the joint moves from the zero starting position.
The extended "anatomical position" of an extremity is accepted as zero degrees rather than as 180 degrees.
Motions are described as active or passive.
Active motion is the patient's movement of the joint through a specified arc of motion.
Passive motion is the examiner's movement of the joint through a special fled arc of motion.

A distinction is made between the terms extension and hyperextension. Extension is the natural motion opposite to flexion at the zero starting position. This is present in wrist and shoulder joints. If, however, the motion opposite to flexion at the zero starting position is an unnatural one, such as that of the elbows or knees, it is referred to as hyperextension.
Limitation of joint motion is described simply. An example of a limitation of joint motion is an elbow that can only be flexed from 30 degrees (above 0 deb./neutral) to 90 degrees (above 0 deb./neutral). Normal ROM is 0 degrees to 150 degrees.
