A total o f ninety-six male and female subjects between the ages of 18-30 volunteered to participate in this study. The variables looked at in this study were: age, gender, height, weight, leg dominance, activity level, and order o f tests performed. Data from the three functional hop tests were divided into aggregated data and non-aggregated data. The data were analyzed using SPSS© for Windows and SAS® software packages. Gender, activity level, and leg dominance influenced the results of the functional tests. This study may assist rehabilitation professionals in evaluating and documenting functional progression.
