A portable quantification apparatus for assessing joint accessory movement is disclosed in the present invention. The apparatus includes a reference module, a movement module, a sliding module and a displacement sensor module. The reference module has a first probe and a first force sensor. The movement module has a second probe and a second force sensor. The sliding module is disposed between the reference module and the movement module which allows the movement module to slide alongside with the reference module. When a patient is under a test, the first probe is against one of two adjacent bones of a joint, while the second probe is against the other adjacent bone. The first force sensor and the second force sensor sense a first force and a second force applying to the reference module and the movement module respectively. The displacement sensor module measures the displacement of the movement module over the reference module.
