Concurrent validity of the anterior drawer test and an arthrometer in evaluating ankle laxity
from ORTHO SuperSite
This study focused on the concurrent validity and reliability of an ankle arthrometer and clinical tests of ankle laxity. A posttest-only control group design was used to compare anterior-posterior (AP) displacement in participants with clinically graded laxity (mechanical instability) and a control group. Forty-four individuals with no recent ankle sprains participated in this study. An ankle arthrometer measured AP displacement, and one investigator clinically graded the anterior drawer test.
