Ely Test
« on: November 17, 2003, 06:15:14 PM »
My doctors dictation says, "Ely test is positive."  What does that mean?

Thankyou
Melissa

Inability to flex knee when hip extended - due to tight rectus femoris muscle.

Ely test (lie on tummy, flex knee, if hip flexes = rectus femoris tight).  

A test of rectus femoris  muscle spasticity.

See http://216.239.59.104/search?q=cache:BTXoCHoSbKkJ:www.indiana.edu/~hperk500/gcma01a/a109mark.pdf+ely+test&hl=en
