AMI TESTS AND SCORING
13 TESTS WITH INDIVIDUAL SCORING
THE AMI RATING
The AMI Rating is created by considering three key components that are crucial for assessing clients, informing treatment plans and making return to sport decisions:
- First is the Movement Score; this measures core stability, single leg squat and hop metrics, and ankle dorsiflexion through a standardized set of seven research-based movements.
- After calculating the Movement Score, the AMI rating incorporates Symmetry elements. Limb Symmetry is calculated to compare the right limb to the left limb and Loss of Balance events are counted across the relevant movements.
- Finally, the AMI Rating takes into account a series of Contributing Factors: Main Sport played, medical history (including previous ACL injury and concussion events) and gender.
The Movement Score
The initial three movements (plank, squat, side plank) record data from the two sensors positioned on the lower back to assess core function. The remaining four movements (single-leg squat, single-leg hop, single-leg hop plant, ankle lunge) are recorded from the two sensors placed on the athlete’s lower legs and pelvic sensor.
By placing the sensors on these specific body parts, the AMI scoring will provide accurate movement data on these well researched and documented movement related tests.
The Calculations & Contributing Factors
Once the movements are completed, the AMI Rating considers a series of contributing factors:
- Limb Symmetry and Loss of Balance
- Main Sport, Medical History and Gender
From this, a summary report and AMI rating score are produced, providing clinicians with objective data that removes the guesswork from return to sport decisions and treatment plans.
The results of the AMI Rating offer clear, objective information which can be utilised to enhance an athlete’s training program, screen for movement dysfunction, and improve areas of weakness with data that is available immediately.
