This is a test to elicit the presence of head of the femur.
- Patient supine
- Palpate the femoral artery pulse bilaterally for volume, intensity and position
- Normally Volume, intensity, and position of the femoral artery pulse are palpable bilaterally.

- If the femoral pulses are not palpable – Hip dislocation
- If the femoral pulses are feeble – Fracture neck of femur
