The Army Range of Motion policy limits its application to ROM issues that are due to a mechanical basis. That Army speicfic policy is currently under review by the DoD General Cousel to see if it is legal and in compliance with DoD directives and instructions.

Jason, Thanks

Mike, I don't understand the the term "mechanical basis" Is my tendon mechanical? I have always taken that it would be rated under [FONT=&quot]5270.[/FONT]

The Army's mechanical basis policy was rescinded in February due to the 2008NDAA requirement to rate per the VASRD. That policy no longer applies.
