Reliability of instrumentation. Bland-Altman plots (mean and 95 % limits of agreement) for torque values required to dorsiflex the ankle to 10 degrees. Comparisons are made for inter-session trials (A = initial trial compared to trial at 10 minutes; B = trial at 10 minutes compared to trial at 30 minutes; C = initial trial compared to trial two weeks later). Open circles represent right side with knee extended; filled circles represent left side with knee extended; open squares represent right side with knee flexed; filled squares represent left side with knee flexed
