Please do not over think this section. Know how to test everything but especially with gravity presented. Do not over study this material like I did. This section is kept very brief. If you are desiring a detailed over view please utilize your text books. It is wise to go through all of these test with a partner a couple of times along with the above ROM.

First thing first you must understand the MMT grades:

0: No palpable contractions

1: Trace: contraction is felt but without movement

2: Full ROM with gravity eliminated

3: Full ROM with gravity but no external resistance

4:Full ROM with gravity and moderate resistance

5: Full ROM with gravity and maximum resistance

Remember if you knee to isolate the soleus muscle bend the knee to eliminate the gastroc muscle, as it crosses the knee joint.
