Biomechanical Analysis of Different Landing Manoevres

Overview

In this study, three-dimensional biomechanics , by means of lower limb joint angles and moments (opto-electronic system with synchronised force plate), of different landing manoevres will be compared in a population of basketball and volleyball players.

Detailed Description

In this study, three-dimensional biomechanics , by means of lower limb joint angles and moments (opto-electronic system with synchronised force plate), of different landing manoevres will be compared in a population of basketball and volleyball players. General as well as more sport-specific jumps will be performed in this study.

Interventions

  • Other: 3D analysis of different landing tasks
    • General as well as more sport-specific landing tasks are investigated with 3D analysis by using an opto-electronic system

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Healthy basketball or volleyball players
    • Basketball and volleyball players Landing biomechanics of different landing tasks is investigated in a population of volleyball and basketball players

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • External knee joint moments
    • Time Frame: comparison between 2 different test moments separated by one week
