Abstract

The Biodex Balance System is a multiaxial device that objectively measures and records an individual’s ability to stabilize the determined joint under dynamic stress. Some authors describe the importance of knee position strategy for stabilizing balance in this situation; however, the reliability of each knee position is underestimated. With this the objective of this study is to compare intrarater reliability of two knee position situations in the Biodex Balance System test.
