Functional performance testing for power and return to sports
Robert Manske, Michael Reiman. Functional performance testing for power and return to sports. Sports Health: A Multidisciplinary Approach, v.5 no.3 (June 2013): pp 244-250. http://dx.doi.org/10.1177/1941738113479925.
Context: Functional performance testing of athletes can determine physical limitations that may affect sporting activities. Optimal functional performance testing simulates the athlete's activity. Evidence Acquisition: A Medline search from 1960 to 2012 was implemented with the keywords functional testing, functional impairment testing, and functional performance testing in the English language. Each author also undertook independent searches of article references. Conclusion: Functional performance tests can bridge the gap between general physical tests and full, unrestricted athletic activity.
