Manual examination is the most common method for the evaluation of ankle anteroposterior (AP) and inversion-eversion (I-E) laxity. Objective assessment data of normal ankle laxity must be provided before comparison with an injured ankle can be made. The purpose of this study was to compare AP translation and I-E rotation at three force loads between dominant and nondominant ankles and to assess the test-retest reliability of a portable arthrometer in obtaining these measurements.
