In ‘bounce home’ test of knee ‘end feels’ are interference. All are ‘end feels’ except
Bounce Home Test of Knee or Passive Extension Test
The test is performed with the patient supine and the foot cupped in the examiner’s hand. With the patient’s knee completely flexed, the knee is passively allowed to extend. The knee should extend completely or bounce home into extension with a sharp FIRM OR SOLID endpoint. If extension is not complete or has a RUBBERY /SPONGY end feel, there is probably a torn meniscus. Positive test is indicated by pain at junction of medial and lateral femoral condyles in medial meniscus tear, not so well localised in lateral meniscus tear and central in ACL tear.
