Basic knee anatomy to start with:
STROKE TEST :
Patient position : Lying supine
PT position : At the side of the knee to be assessed
Test : The examiner strokes the medical side of the patella with the palm  and fingers two or three times from below the joint line up till the suprapatellar pouch while using the other hand to stroke down the lateral side of the patella
Sign/Interpretation : If a wave of fluid passes to the medial side of the joint and bulges below the medial distal border of patella, it indicates minimal effusion in the Knee.
