With the knee flexed to approximately 80 verification of complete relaxation of the hamstrings is achieved by hamstring palpation.

With the foot stabilized and in neutral rotation, a firm, but gentle, grip on the proximal tibia is achieved.
An anterior force is then applied to the proximal tibia with a gentle to-and-fro motion to assess for increased translation compared to the normal contralateral knee.
