Validation of musculoskeletal assessment tools

Summary

Specificity and validity of musculoskeletal assessment tools are important aspects to consider when selecting the right tool for a client. New or modified assessments have not been thoroughly investigated for use in different population groups, and clinicians need to reliably implement the assessment tools appropriately. The purpose of this project is to establish normative values across different population groups, investigate the construct validity, specificity, and accuracy of the tests.
