Matles Test

The Matles test assesses the Achilles tendon for suspected rupture. Ask the patient to lie prone with her knees flexed to 90 degrees with the feet relaxed. In a normal test, her feet will be in slight plantarflexion. Dorsiflexion of the foot is a positive test, and indicates a ruptured Achilles tendon on that side.
