  1. M = Assessment of methodological quality: “excellent”, “good”, “fair”, “poor” by COSMIN. Q = criteria for measurement properties; + = positive rating;? = indeterminate rating; − = negative rating.
  2. a Inter-rater reliability measurements have been performed by two different professions.
  3. bOnly kappas are reported instead of percent agreement because this reflects better methodological quality according to the COSMIN criteria
  4. N.A. Not applicable was reported for the quality criteria when an article had poor methodological quality.
