German term or phrase: KBA 2QF
Believe it or not, this is all I got. Context: findings regarding an injury of the spine.
I suspect QF might be Querfortsatz( transverse process) but am not sure. KBA might refer to a certain mobility(?) of vertebrae. A few lines above, the text states FBA 20 cm, so the KBA and FBA might or might not be different aspects of the same thing. See the questions I posted earlier, and many thanks for the response to it!
As always, grateful for any suggestions! J.

Explanation:
Hope this is not too late…
And the bad news first – can’t find anything on KBA. Assuming that BA = Bodenabstand (and I think that’s a correct assumption), the K is still troubling. Kopf ? Knie-Bodenabstand does not make sense in view of the disease. Kopf-Bodenabstand would make sense, but not in view of the fingerbreadths.
Anyway, here is what I found, and I hope it still helps.

Acc. to Pschyrembel, QF = Querfingerbreite
Querfingerbreite = two fingerbreadths (Bunjes)

FBA = Finger-Bodenabstand
Funktionstest und Schmerztest
Beweglichkeit Wirbelsäule: Maß für Gesamtbeweglichkeit der Wirbelsäule: Finger-Boden-Abstand (FBA). BWS: Ott'sches Maß, LWS: Schober-Zeichen

This particular URL deals with Bandscheibenbedingte Ischialgie, and that seems to fit right into the context of your other queries. You’ll also find references to Lasègue here.

You may also want to investigate Bechterew-Krankheit; in searching on Bodenabstand +Wirbelsäule, I came upon some sites that deal with that degenerative disease of the spine. Maybe that'll fit in with your overall context.
In any case, hope I'm not too late, and hope it helps!
