After my surgeon telling me today that I don't need to worry about ROM at all now, I still wasn't sure what ROM would achieve the best. One article I read said to get up and down in a bath 'normally' you needed 135. But I just found a useful bit in the 'orthopaedics and trauma journal' online - scopic ROM in a PS knee is an average of 115° and a maximum of 145°. This functional range is adequate ... ROM after knee replacement. - That seems a fairly good guide! It went on to say in climbing stairs and rising from a chair (guess that depends on height of chair though!) 95 degrees are needed.
