Study group discussion: Biceps femoris reflex

Does anyone know what biceps femoris reflex is?

Biceps femoris reflex is a highly sensitive and reliable clinical tool for evaluation of the S1 spinal reflex pathway in radiculopathy.

It's the contraction of biceps femoris muscle when it is tapped on the lower part of its head just above its attachment on the head of fibula, with the limb slightly flexed at hip and knee.

Hope this helps :)

Thanks!
