Nerve conduction tests were performed on veterans who were referred to the Electromyography laboratory of the Boston Veterans Administration Out Patient Clinic. Results from these tests in addition to other nerve conduction tests performed between January 1984 and August 1986 in this laboratory were used to establish a database of normal nerve conduction parameters for the motor and sensory nerves commonly studied in the lower extremity, namely common peroneal, posterior tibial, superficial peroneal and sural nerves. Nerve conduction measurements including latency of onset, F wave latency, amplitude and conduction velocity were analyzed for inter-relationships and correlations with the independent variables which included age, temperature, and leg length.
