Differences in lower extremity kinematics between a bilateral drop-vertical jump and a single-leg step-down.

STUDY DESIGN Mixed-model, repeated-measures design in a laboratory setting. OBJECTIVES To examine the differences in hip, knee, and ankle kinematics between a bilateral drop-vertical jump and single-leg step-down. A secondary purpose was to examine gender differences in kinematics of the tasks. BACKGROUND Both a drop-vertical jump and step-down task… CONTINUE READING
