The concept of thresholds have commonly appeared in the literature for the topic of inter-limb asymmetry. However, with an abundance of literature showing asymmetry to be task and metric-specific, the use of thresholds seems flawed. When computed, practitioners are often left with a percentage figure and it is not always entirely obvious how to interpret this value. This article aims to provide practitioners with some guidelines on meaningful ways to use and interpret inter-limb asymmetry data.
