Reliability of movement control tests
Inter- and intra-observer reliability of clinical movement-control tests for marines Andreas Monnier1, Joachim Heuer, Kjell Norman and Björn O Äng BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders 2012, 13:263 doi:10.1186/1471-2474-13-263. Available on-line open access
Clinical tests that emphasize movement control for back and hip had moderate-to-almost-perfect inter-observer reliability, indicating that these tests are reliable as screening tests using several observers with marines.
