Sit and Reach flexibility testing is part of the President's Challenge Physical Fitness Test. The Sit and Reach Test measures the combined flexibility of the back and upper body.
The Lafayette standard sit and reach test will test the maximum flexibility of the back attainable without undue strain on the back muscles. The flexibility of the back muscles can indicate the tasks or movements the back is capable of performing. The Sit and Reach Flexibility Tester is a highly accurate and valid method of measuring back flexibility. The unit is constructed of durable, yet lightweight aluminum. The top is a platform scale containing an auto-zero slide arm that extends more then 16 inches. The rule is marked in 1/2 inch increments to 23 inches, and in centimeters to 59cm. The subject sits with legs straight and feet flat against the no-mar rubber panels affixed to the front. The subject reaches forward, moving the slide bar to maximum reach.
The Lafayette Adjustable Sit and Reach Flexibility Tester has the following dimensions:
- Base: 18 inch long x 12 inch wide x 13-3/4 inch high
- Top: 27 1/2 inch long x 12 inch wide
