Big toe force test


This test is done with the customer sitting with the foot suspended.

  1. Ask the customer to stand upright in a relaxed, weight bearing position and to look straight ahead.
  2. Place index and middle finger on top of the big toe joint to stabilise it. Place the thumb under the tip of the big toe.
  3. Try to lift the big toe. Assess the force required to it off the ground.
  4. Select Easy, Moderate or Hard (for each foot).
