Abstract

The aim of this study was to describe different movement task strategies during unanticipated cutting manoeuvres based on initial foot contact and angle in the frontal plane at the instant of first contact with the ground. Four female athletes participated in this study. Nine infrared cameras and force platform were employed to collect the kinematic and kinetic data. Athletes used four different movement task strategies during unanticipated cutting manoeuvres (45°) in initial contact with the ground. The results of this pilot study showed that combination of rearfoot strike and knee valgus angle position at the initial contact may increase the risk of an ACL injury.
