  • Janda Test?

    Dear Biomechanics list,

    I had posted this question to another list but have yet to receive any

    I recently purchased the 5th edition of Sprints & Relays edited by Jess
    Jarver and published by Tafnews. One of the articles was 'Performance
    Prerequisits and Performance Development of Young Sprinters' by Dagmar
    Luhnenschloss, Joachim Griebsch, and Dieter Topel, Germany. The article was
    originally published in German in Leistungssport Vol 27, No. 6., September
    1997. The article that appeared was a slightly abbreviated translation by
    the editor.

    In the article the authors break down their search for sprinting
    talent by different factors including: Anthropometric/Sport Biological
    References, and Performance factors of Condition, Coordination, and
    Technique. One of the subfactors of Condition was Stretching Capacity.

    The aim given was: To Record changes in stretching capacity and to establish
    any correlation between mobility and injury occurrences. This was to be
    determined by the Janda Test.

    My question to the list is: What exactly is the Janda Test and how would it
    gauge these proposed changes in stretching capacity?
