Table 2 Outcome measures summary

From: The effects of neuromuscular exercise on medial knee joint load post-arthroscopic partial medial meniscectomy: ‘SCOPEX’ a randomised control trial protocol

Primary outcome measures  
Peak external knee adduction moment during stance a) Walking (normal pace)
  b) One-leg rise
Secondary outcome measures  
Peak external knee adduction moment during stance a) Walking (fast pace)
  b) One-leg hop for distance
External knee adduction moment impulse during stance a) Walking (normal pace and fast pace)
  b) One-leg rise
  c) One-leg hop for distance
Knee and hip muscle strength Isometric and isokinetic knee extensors and flexors (isokinetic dynamometer)
  Isometric hip abductors and hip adductors (instrumented manual muscle tester)
Muscle activity patterns and co-contractions Surface electromyography
Objective functional performance a) One-leg rise
  b) Knee bends
  c) One-leg hop for distance
Pain, other symptoms, function in ADL and Sport and Recreation, quality of life Knee injury and osteoarthritis outcome score
Other measures
