Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Knee joint injuries are common in sports activities. Because it is understood that non-contact ACL injuries most often occur during cutting or landing tasks, biomechanical studies have examined in lower extremity kinematics. Cutting maneuvers during sporting are not always anticipated, and usually occur as a sudden reaction to an external stimulus. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to compare the joint moments in the lower extremity of females during anticipated and unanticipated running and cutting manoeuvres.
