Finally, measuring accessory movements of carpal bones against the capitate bone using a 3-point scale yielded fair to moderate reliability (weighted Kappa from 0.
In addition, findings from four studies (Chesworth et al 1998, Hayes and Petersen 2001, Patla and Paris 1993, Van Duijn and Jensen 2001) indicated that measuring end-feel or accessory movements of joints with large ranges of motion was associated with lower reliability.
Future research should focus on comparing inter-rater reliability of end-feel and accessory movements with passive physiological range of motion assessment, using symptomatic individuals.
