Assessing agreement between measurements recorded on a ratio scale in sports medicine and sports science.
OBJECTIVE: The consensus of opinion suggests that when assessing measurement agreement, the most appropriate statistic to report is the "95% limits of agreement". The precise form that this intervalExpand
Scaling physiological measurements for individuals of different body size
SummaryThis paper examines how selected physiological performance variables, such as maximal oxygen uptake, strength and power, might best be scaled for subject differences in body size. The apparentExpand
