3. Criteria The vertical axis of the length of the leg should remain straight. A genu varum or a valgum should not occur. The patella should point in the direction of the third metatarsale.
4. Criteria If intermittent support is necessary with the hand against the wall or with the foot on the floor, the component is considered as incorrect. If additional support needed throughout the entire exercise, the component is valued as: > 2 incorrect criteria
