2011 Growth diagrams for individual finger strength in children measured with the RIHM CORR Open Access

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3032876

Results Because there was no difference in strength between boys and girls and between dominant and nondominant hands, both hands and genders were combined in one growth diagram for each measurement. The normative data were presented in a table format and in growth diagrams for each myometer measurement.
Conclusions These diagrams can be...

2011 Inter-examiner reproducibility of tests for lumbar motor control

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/12/114/abstract

Background Many studies show a relation between reduced lumbar motor control (LMC) and low back pain (LBP). However, test circumstances vary and during test performance, subjects may change position. In other words, the reliability - i.e. reproducibility and validity - of tests for LMC should be based on quantitative data. This...

2011 The quality of evidence of psychometric properties of three-dimensional spinal posture-measuring instruments

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/12/93/abstract

This paper reports the findings of a systematic literature review which aimed to 1) identify non-invasive three-dimensional (3D) human posture-measuring instruments; and 2) assess the quality of reporting of the methodological procedures undertaken to establish their psychometric properties, using a purpose-build critical appraisal tool.
Conclusions There is a lack of current research...

2011 Validity and reliability of using photography for measuring knee range of motion

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/12/77/abstract

Conclusion Photography potentially offers a superior method of measurement over standard goniometry as visualising the centre of the knee is simplified in a two-dimensional plane and the permanent record provides greater assessor transparency as well as opportunity to confer. The Marker and Line of Femur Methods have moderate to substantial validity,...
