Background: The measurement of joint movement is an important component of a comprehensive physical examination of the all extremities by which one enables health professionals to accurately assess dysfunction and rehabilitative progress.
Aim: To determine the normal range of motion or angle of the joint at Wrist via the performance of active joint motion of the subjects during the evaluation allows the examiner to screen for abnormal movements and gain information about the subjectís willingness to move. Resisted isometric muscle contraction and tests are used in conjunction with Goniometry to help isolate the injured anatomical structure.
Materials and Methods: All the subjects (400 Subjects) studied had a normal wrist joint skeleton which was included in the present study. All subjects were divided into four age groups and wrist joint were subjected to goniometric measurements with the movement ulnar and radial deviation and flexion and extension of both hands through universal Goniometer.
Statistical Analysis: Mean and standard deviation of the analyzed parameters taken into account Statistical analyses were performed with the SPSS version 20.
Result: Readings were noted, (the radial & ulnar deviation and flexion and extension) of the wrist joint, total range of motion were higher in left hand as compared to the right hand.

Key words: Wrist joint, Range Of Motion, Goniometer,
