Inter-rater reliability of isometric hip abductor strength, 1RM leg press, hamstrings flexibility and the Star Excursion Balance Test in elite female football- and handball players: A methodological stud
MetadataShow full item record
Strength-, flexibility- and balance measures are tools used to examine risk factors for injuries in a clinical setting. In an on-going prospective cohort study at the Oslo Sports Trauma Research Center aimed at investigating risk factors for ACL injuries in elite female football- and handball players several of these tests are used. The different tests have shown high inter-rater reliability, but the studies are rarely conducted on elite female football- or handball players. The aim of this study was to investigate the inter-rater reliability of tests assessing the isometric hip abductor strength, 1RM in a leg press machine, the hamstrings flexibility and the Star Excursion Balance Test evaluating risk factors for ACL injury in elite female football- and handball players.
