Test III

Positioning..

The subject lies supine with the knee fully flexed (heel to the buttock). The examiner
passes his flexed thumbtip from above downwards over the joint line at the affected side . This is easier to perform at the medial side than on the lateral.

Procedure..

A ruptured meniscus is suspected when it is possible to hook the rim of the
meniscus and pull it downwards until it is felt to jump back in place again.
