Abstract

Objective This study aimed to validate the KOJI AWARENESS™, a self-screening movement test, and compare it with the Functional Movement Screen (FMS). Methods Fifty-seven healthy participants completed the KOJI AWARENESS™ and functional movement screening. Pearson’s correlation coefficients were used to assess the validity of the test. Subsequently, partial correlation analysis was used to determine the associations between age, sex, body mass index, and sports level as control variables and motor function. Results Correlation and partial correlation analyses showed a strong positive correlation between the functional movement screening and the KOJI AWARENESS™ scores. Conclusion This study found that the KOJI AWARENESS™ test is valid and comparable to functional movement screening. It can be used for self-screening of movement.
