Reliability, Validity, and Responsiveness of Performance-Based Activity Level Outcome Measures in Patients after Meniscectomy: A Pilot Study

Author: Eryn Milian

Background: When choosing an outcome measure to evaluate the effect of rehabilitation after an arthroscopic partial meniscectomy, the psychometric properties of that outcome measure and the mechanism of injury should both be considered. However, the psychometric properties of many established performance-based measures have not been studied in this population. The purpose of this study is to establish the reliability, validity, and responsiveness of the Single-Limb Single Hop for Distance (SLHT), Single-Limb Crossover Hop for Distance (CHT), Illinois Agility Test (IAT), Edgren Side Step Test (ESST), and the Stair Measure Test (SMT) in patients who have undergone a meniscectomy.
