Movement screens such as the single leg squat (SLS), forward step down (FSD) and lateral step down (LSD) may be implemented by sports medicine practitioners for movement analysis and rehabilitation protocols. However, differences between the kinematic demands of these tasks remain unclear. PURPOSE: Determine if kinematic differences exist between the SLS, FSD, and LSD. METHODS: Participants (n=15) performed five repetitions of each task on their preferred leg. Kinematics were analyzed with motion capture for the entire motion and normalized to 100 data points. Trunk, pelvis, hip and knee kinematics were analyzed in both sagittal and frontal planes between tasks with multiple one-way ANOVAs from the statistical parametric mapping (SPM) package. The SPM analysis identified when the time series became statistically different (p
