    They were measuring immediate vs delayed onset to the windlass in my speak ... that is not really an intact or limited windlass ... as the windlass still works, its just delayed.

    They also raise an important point of th etest - they note that this is currently often used to assess functional hallux limitus rather than per se windlass and perhaps the latter is a more valid use as we know this test is not reflective of dynamic 1st MTPJ motion
    (Halstead & Redmond, J Orthop Sports Phys Ther, 2006). We generally use the test as one of our evaluations for the effect of our orthoses albeit a static test.

    There is a lot of confusion over this with several bit of conflicting advice being given. I just finished editing a video on it

  6. If Simon Spooner was here he might be writing something about windlass does not just occur at the 1st.
