Brief Summary in Lay Language

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) was first introduced in 1998 by a physiotherapist - Gray Cook and a sports scientist - Lee Burton as a tool to screen college students in the USA.
The test includes 7 items and 3 clearing exams. A test can be scored from 0-3 points. It is constructed to identify muscular imbalances, asymmetrical and dysfunctional movements.
Abnormalities like these can be seen as indicators for a higher risk of injury. Furthermore some authors have discussed wheter some special items can be used to screen people with a higher risk of injury. This study aims to access wheter a low overall scoring or special items can be used to identify college students witha high risk of injury.
The study inclueds at least two Screens and a monthly online questionnaire to register injuries.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Backround: Injuries can be a enormous problem for future sport scientists. They loose time and in the worst case they need to change their subject. Therefore it could be useful to implement a screening tool to capture people with a high risk of injury. The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a screening tool that is discussed to register people with a high risk of injury. The science-based evidence is still controversial. This trial is supposed to expand the knowledge about the assessment.
Method: For the study a prospective trial is planned. The participants are recruited students of the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen. All participants take part in at least two FMS Screens (one at the beginning of the semester and one at the end) and are supposed to fill in a monthly online questionnaire to gain information about injuries, duration and frequency of sports participation and some personal data (weigth, height etc.)
The aim of the study is to judge wheter the FMS is a tool that can be used to identify students with a higher risk of injury.

Primary Outcome

Comparison of the FMS result at the beginning and end of the semester and the incidence of injuries.
The aim is to judge wheter a low FMS result or one of the tests can be seen as an indicator for injury. Investigation includes two FMS Screens and a monthly online questionnaire.
