We present mobile health (mHealth) applications utilizing embedded phone sensors as an angle-measuring device for upper-limb range of motion (ROM) and estimation of reachable workspace to assist in evaluation of upper limb functional capacity. Our results show that the phone can record accurate measurements, as well as provide additional functionalities for clinicians.
