Injury prevention

Document Type



The aim of this study was to find differences between the Trendelenburg test and risk factors for an ACL injury during a cutting manoeuvre in two age groups. Six female athletes divided into two groups (n3x2) participated in this study. Ten infrared cameras and force platform were used to collect the kinematic and kinetic data. The results of this pilot study suggest no hip weakness was observed in either group. The younger group had a larger difference between starting and finishing position during TT. In other side we found the higher values of the ACL risk factors in the older group.
