  1. ICC, intraclass correlation coefficient (lower and upper-bound of the 95% confidence interval [CI95%]); MDC95, minimal detectable change values computed with a 95% confidence interval; MDC%, minimal detectable change values expressed as a percentage of the mean; mDiff, mean difference computed between test and retest measures (lower and upper-bound of the CI95%); Mean S2/S3, mean (standard deviation [SD]) value of parameters for session 2 (S2) and 3 (S3)
