Abstract

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is used to assess overall movement quality, identify mobility and stability, and assess possible asymmetries within an individual. Purpose: The aim of this study is to compare the Deep Squat Functional Movement Screen Scores between barefoot and shod (wearing shoes) conditions in college-aged students. Methods: Eighty-two healthy, college-aged participants performed all seven FMS tests in both shod and barefoot conditions. Of this, 73.2% subjects were females (n=60) and 26.8% subjects were males (n=22). Descriptive statistics for the participants are as follows: age (20.5±1.06 yrs), height (170.36±9.19 cm), and mass (71.09±13.80 kg). Results: The average Deep Squat FMS Shod score was 1.66±0.61 (mean ± SD) and the average Deep Squat FMS Barefoot score was 1.44±0.52 (mean ± SD). A paired-samples T-test revealed a significant difference in Deep Squat scores when comparing barefoot and shod conditions (p
