The plane of measurement is dictated by the type of flexion or rotation you are measuring. You can watch a number of videos on our YouTube channel that show how to set the plane for different measurements. What is important to note is that EasyAngle measures rotations around the grip, as shown in the image. Only perform your measurement where the device is rotated accordingly. You should not perform more than one full rotation of the device during measurement.
If your EasyAngle freezes or becomes unresponsive, you may need to do a hard reset. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to do this. When you release the power button, the device should reset and you will see some small numbers briefly displayed on the screen before it returns to your measurement history display. If a hard reset does not work, contact us and we will troubleshoot further.
No. Once you start the measurement, you can set the device to one side or place it in your pocket as you help the patient come to their max range of motion for the joint being measured. You then take the device and align it with the devices end range before clicking the large turquoise button to complete the measurement. You can watch many examples of how to do this on our YouTube channel.

When you are taking a measurement, the display will show bubbles if you move outside of your plane of measurement. This feature helps to ensure you take accurate measurements each and every time. Just move back into your plane of measurement and the bubbles will disappear with your measurement once again being displayed.
The device always displays two angles, the sum of which equals 180°. The larger of the two numbers displays the actual angle that the EasyAngle has measured. The smaller number which displays beneath the measurement is the supplementary angle, which is 180° minus the actual angle.
An exclamation mark accompanied by an image of the device is a bump warning. This denotes that the device has been bumped or moved too fast during the measurement causing an acceleration error. This will abort the measurement. You will need to restart your measurement if you get this warning.
An exclamation mark accompanied by an image of an hourglass is a timeout warning. This denotes that the measurement has taken more than one minute. This will abort the measurement. You will need to restart your measurement if you get this warning.
