Abstract

INTRODUCTION: In recent years, some research has been done on the relationship between the revolving speed of the adults` knee angles and sports achievements (Sheng, 1992; 1989; 1995). However, there is little information concerning this issue in children. The purpose of this study was to explore the developing regularity of the flexion speed of children’s knee angles across age.
