The maintenance of adequate binding adjustment is especially important for the prevention of knee injuries in female carving skiers and the introduction of carving skis and related equipment has altered the overall injury rate and/or the pattern of injury location.

It is concluded from the results that footprint parameters proposed in the literature (arch angle, footprint index, and arch index) and two further parameters suggested in this study are invalid as a basis for prediction or categorization of arch height.
