1 Page 1 f 6 Subject: Range f Mtin Exercises Date Develped: 4/2010 PROTOCOL FOR: All trained staff PURPOSE: Range f Mtin (ROM) exercises are very imprtant if an individual has t stay in bed r in a wheelchair. A physician s rder must be btained. These exercises help keep the jints and muscles as healthy as pssible. Withut these exercises, bld flw and flexibility (mving and bending) f an individual s jints can decrease. Jints, such as knees and elbws, can becme stiff and lcked withut ROM exercises. Passive ROM exercises help keep jint areas flexible, but d nt build up muscles r make them strng. GUIDELINES: ROM exercises may be active, active-assisted, ismetric, r passive. Active ROM is dne when an individual can d the exercises by themselves. Active-assisted ROM exercises are dne by the individual and a helper. Ismetric exercises can be perfrmed by an individual wh has an immbilized extremity r part f the bdy, t help maintain muscle strength when jints r bdy segments cannt be mved. Passive ROM exercises are dne fr the individual by a helper. The helper des the ROM exercises because the individual cannt d them by themselves. D nt d passive ROM exercises n an individual withut first talking t the individual s physician. Tgether yu can decide what exercise plan is best fr the individual. Raise the individual s bed t a height that is cmfrtable fr yu. This will help keep yu frm hurting yur back r ther muscles. Make sure the wheels f the bed r wheelchair are lcked befre yu start the exercises. D all ROM exercises smthly and gently. Never frce, jerk, r ver-stretch a muscle. This can hurt the muscle r jint instead f helping. Mve the jint slwly. This is especially imprtant if the individual has muscle spasms (tightening). Mve the jint nly t the pint f resistance. This is the pint where yu cannt bend the jint any further. Put slw, steady pressure n the jint until the muscle relaxes. Stp ROM exercises if the individual feels pain. Ask the individual t tell yu right away if he feels any pain. Watch fr signs f pain if the individual is unable t talk. The exercises shuld never cause pain r g beynd the nrmal mvement f that jint.
