Abstract

The quadriceps or Q-angle is the only routinely available measure of patello-femoral joint mechanics in the clinical situation. It is commonly measured by clinicians using a long-arm goniometer with the subject in the standing or long-sitting position. Q-angle values are important and greatly influence the nature of treatment, including surgery, of individuals with anterior knee pain syndrome (AKPS). It is well documented that measures taken with a goniometer are subject to varying levels of intra- and inter-relater reliability (Hogeweg et al, 19941, whereas the Peak-5 video motion analysis system is of proven accuracy and reliability (Scholz and Millford, 1995). Thus the purpose of this preliminary study was to investigate the reliability of a particular procedure for measuring the Q-angle in healthy adults, in both static and dynamic circumstances, using the Peak-5 video motion analysis system.
