    Would make very interesting comparison contralaterally where client developed club foot due to spinal injury probably at birth.

    Can one of the research - statistic gurus on the Podiatry Arena please explain what this means.

    "The limits of agreement, relative to structure size, ranged from 9.0% to 17.5% for muscle thickness, 11.0–18.0% for plantar fascia, and 11.0–26.0% for cross sectional area measurements."

    Thank you

  4. Steve, basically it means that for the two observers in the study, they could be 95% sure that their measurements were the same, within the percentiles reported. As they reported percentages it takes into account variations in the absolute size of the different tissues they were measuring. 26% difference seems a fair bit in my book. Hope that makes sense. Otherwise Google: "Bland and Altman limits of agreement".
