Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Universal goniometer (UG) is the most commonly measuring tool used in clinical settings for ankle joint range of motion measurements hence, its intratester reliability is essential. Intratester reliability is the degree of agreement between measurements taken by one tester on different occasions. A literature review was conducted about the reliability of UG. Intratester reliability was found to be good to excellent amongst healthy subjects. The studies provided low level evidence and variation in methodology used in the studies reduced the ability for direct comparison between them. In conclusion UG is a reliable tool for ankle joint measurements amongst healthy subjects.
