Program testing involves:
- Cybex testing
- Force plate testing

- Biomechanical analysis
- Proprioception testing

There is significant evidence for goal based physical landmarks for return to activity following injury or surgery. The principle of the sport testing is to apply this rationale for all injured athletes and make sure symmetry, strength/power and movement patterns are measured allowing for decrease chance of injury and improved outcomes with return to sport.
