Universal goniometer (UG) is the most commonly measuring tool used in clinical settings for ankle joint range of motion measurements hence, its intratester reliability is essential. Intratester reliability is the degree of agreement between measurements taken by one tester on different occasions. A literature review was conducted about the reliability of UG. Intratester reliability was found to be good to excellent amongst healthy subjects. The studies provided low level evidence and variation in methodology used in the studies reduced the ability for direct comparison between them. In conclusion UG is a reliable tool for ankle joint measurements amongst healthy subjects.
