Single-leg Triple Crossover Hop Test (RTP Testing)

Instructions

     Mark a strip on the ground with tape 20 ft long and 15cm wide. Instruct the patient to stand on uninvolved leg with hands on hips, behind the start line.  Instruct the patient they are to hop 3 consecutive times on one foot, crossing over the center strip on each hop. The first hop will be medial across the tape line. The patient is encouraged to hop as far forward as possible on each hop, but must stick the final landing and hold for 2 seconds. Perform three repetitions for each leg. The single-leg forward leap will be filmed from a frontal view. 

Scoring

    Measure the distance closest to start line (from patient’s heel). Perform three repetitions for each leg. All measurements are made in centimeters.
