OBJECTIVE To determine if gender and limb dominance affect dynamic postural stability and vertical ground reaction force data during jump landings. Secondary objective was to assess the reliability of the dynamic postural stability index (DPSI). DESIGN A mixed model (2 genderx2 limb) repeated measures design was used to determine the effects of gender and limb dominance on dynamic postural stability. Subjects were required to perform a two-legged jump to a height equivalent of 50% of their… CONTINUE READING
