  3. They state that:

    "Although published studies have indicated that the FPI has good intrarater reliability and moderate interrater reliability"

    And from their own results:
    "Intrarater reliability was high but interrater reliability was only moderate"

    Which they interpret as:
    "The FPI-6 should be used with extreme caution and may actually have limited value, especially from a research perspective"

    How does this compare with the conclusions of the afore mentioned previous published studies? Who authored the previous studies?

    We done several (usualy FPI relibility data was done as part of the normal reliability of data collection tools). For eg, in:
    in which 4 examiners on two days looked at 88 feet (two experienced and two inexpieenced tester were used) we reported:
    This was on the original FPI-8 and not the modified FPI-6
     
  5. Are these the studies referred to by Cornwall et al.?

    Dear All,
    Last year we reported excellent intrarater (ICC = 0.81 to 0.92) and good interrater (ICC=0.69) reliability of the revised FPI-6 between an experienced podiatrist, physiotherapist and physiotherapy student (Cain LE. Nicholson LL. Adams RD. Burns J. Foot morphology and foot/ankle injury in indoor football. Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport 10(5):311-9, 2007).

    Kind regards
    Josh Burns
