      Although previous studies have used a LSI > 85% to indicate “normal” limb symmetry, these results suggest that a cut-off of 90% should be used to ensure that the function of the injured limb is being restored. 

 

Noyes et al

      Hop tests should be used in conjunction with other clinical assessment tools (isokinetic testing, arthrometer testing, thorough patient history) to provide confirmation as to the extent of lower limb functional limitations for individuals with chronic ACL deficient knees.
