One metre system on floor:
a. A basic step test can be evaluated for biomechanical efficiency. Contact and flight time of each leg is evaluated for symmetry.
b. Standard squat jump can be evaluated for maximum power. Pelvic angle can be noted instantly. Conditioning protocols can be based off this angle.
c. One-legged jumps, in any direction, are employed to compare left and right power. Knowing the patient’s overall power is only one aspect; symmetry is key to all rehabilitative programs.
d. Agility, left and right, is studied via simple ski tests. Left and right contact and flight times are easily compared. Effective treatment ensures there is no favoured side.
