A Trendelenburg’s test is performed to assess the integrity of the abductor mechanism of the hip, which consists of fulcrum, lever arm and power.
The primary musculature involved is the gluteal musculature, including the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus muscles.
Any pathology of the fulcrum, load, effort, or the lever which binds all three will lead to a positive Trendelenburg test.
