Abstract

Test-retest reliability of a new neurocognitive functional performance test: the choice-reaction hop test.

Andersen K*, Rosen AB*, Choi JY*, Remski LE*, Knarr BA*: *University of Nebraska at Omaha

Context: Functional performance tests (FPTs) assess physical deficits after injury. For chronic ankle instability (CAI), the side-hop test (SHT) is the gold-standard FPT. Adding neurocognitive components to FPTs could provide a more encompassing test. This study aimed to validate a choice-reaction hop test (CRHT) and to determine its test-retest reliability and minimal detectable change (MDC).

Methods: Fourteen participants completed the hop tests. For the SHT, participants hopped mediolaterally on one leg ten times as quickly as possible over two lines placed 30cm apart. For the CRHT, participants hopped on an instrumented mat on one leg mediolaterally to one of two squares on each side randomly indicated by a light. Ten repetitions were performed for three trials on each limb for each test. After one week, participants returned to perform the CRHT. A paired t-test was used to test times between the CRHT and SHT. ICC was computed between day 1 and 2 to assess reliability of the CRHT. MDC was calculated to determine clinically relevant differences in CRHT times.

Results: Participants took longer to complete the CRHT compared to SHT (p

Conclusions: The CRHT took longer to complete compared to the SHT, indicating its ability to test neurocognitive function during an FPT. The CRHT demonstrated acceptable reliability, which could be useful for rehabilitation practices that involve benchmarking. The CRHT could be great tool to assess both physical and neurocognitive function, aiding in clinical decision making for patients with CAI.
