- Flexibility Test: Flexibility has been defined as the range of motion of muscle and connective tissues at a joint or group of joints. Flexibility can simply be viewed as measuring the angle of joints or their range of motion (ROM). devices used for the assessments are called goniometers.

It can be used to evaluate osteoporosis, predict the chance of your breaking bones, and can be used to check if you are responding to treatment that is if the condition of your bones is improving or worsening. Single-energy Photon Absorptiometry (SPA), Radiographic Absorptiometry (RA), Radiogrametry(RG), Single-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (SXA), Peripheral Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (pDXA), and Quantitative Ultrasonometry (QUS) are procedures used to measure this.
