This study describes the interrater reliability of a novel goniometric technique to measure scapular protraction and retraction. Measurements obtained by two experienced OTs demonstrated a standard error of measure of less than 4 degrees using this technique on a healthy sample of adults (N = 80). This technique may offer a more reliable method to assess scapular mobility as an essential motor component of occupational performance.
