Brief Summary:
This study was to investigate the reliability and validity of the smartphone goniometer app to measure shoulder ROM in a modified position for patients with frozen shoulder, and compare the intervention effect and adherence to home exercise between the smartphone and traditional paper hangouts.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Frozen Shoulder Other: Smartphone Other: traditional paper hangouts Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This study was to investigate the reliability and validity of the smartphone goniometer app to measure shoulder ROM in a modified position for patients with frozen shoulder, and compare the intervention effect and adherence to home exercise between the smartphone and traditional paper hangouts. The outcome measure including shoulder range of motion, pain condition, home exercise adherence and satisfaction of smartphone program

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: traditional paper hangouts group
patients use the traditional paper hangouts to conduct the home exercise program at home
Other: traditional paper hangouts
patients with frozen shoulder in the smartphone group will use the paper hangouts to conduct the home exercise program. The content of the paper hangouts were description of the home exercise.

Experimental: smartphone group
patients use the smartphone to conduct the home exercise program at home
Other: Smartphone
patients with frozen shoulder in the smartphone group will use the smartphone to conduct the home exercise program. The patients will be asked to follow the description to have mobility assessment at least 1 week and do the individualized exercise themselves.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. home exercise adherence [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    the days patients do the home exercise program


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. shoulder range of motion [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 weeks ]
    the mobility of shoulder

  2. Visual analog scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 weeks ]
    Ranged form 0 (minimum score) to 10 (Maximum score) ,the higher score represent more painful

  3. System usability scale (SUS) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    the satisfaction scale of the smartphone program
