  Title Intrarater and interrater reliability of angular measures using TEMPLO two-dimensional motion analysis software
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2019 Jul;42(6):425-429
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the intrarater and interrater reliability of marking 2 angles with the TEMPLO software and to provide relevant information for clinical practice.

METHODS: A prospective test-retest study has been conducted. Four raters took measures on 2 days, with 2 weeks in between. Craniovertebral angle and trunk forward lean were drawn on 22 video frames using TEMPLO. Reliability was examined using intraclass correlation coefficients including standard errors of measurement and minimal detectable change values as measures of precision expressed in the unit of the test (°).

RESULTS: Intraclass correlation coefficients for intrarater and interrater reliability ranged from 0.98 to 1.00. Standard errors of measurement and minimal detectable change values ranged from 0.4° to 0.8° and 0.8° to 2.3°, respectively.

CONCLUSION: These results indicate excellent reliability for craniovertebral angle and trunk forward lean assessed with TEMPLO software. Changes exceeding 2.3° may be expected to fall outside the test's variability.
