Authors: Emelie Brinkeback and Emma Lundqvist, Karolinska Institute.

Year of study: 2015

Number of subjects: 9 (all female) with no indications.

Objective:

Investigate intra- and inter-rater reliability of EasyAngle for measurement of passive straight leg raise to estimate the length of the hamstring muscle and to evaluate the effect of a new dynamic stretching programme.

Method:

Measurements with EasyAngle was done before after the intervention to evaluate effect. Two physiotherapy students performed measurements and intra-rater reliability of EasyAngle was investigated by comparing measurement results from two physiotherapists for the same measurement. Intra-rater reliability was investigated by having each physiotherapist do three measurements on the same patient on each occasion and comparing results.

Result summary:

The study showed excellent inter-rater reliability as well as excellent intra-rater reliability.
