The purpose of this Clinically Appraised Topic (CAT) was to evaluate the predictive validity of two movement screening tools: the FMS, which evaluates kinematic control during functional movement tasks and the VDJT, which evaluates both kinetic and kinematic variables during a high impulse jump task. With both screening tools looking to identify at risk movement patterns, this CAT sought to evaluate predictive screening ability and determine which tool demonstrated superior ability to stratify non-contact ACL injury risk.
