Abstract

When performing a jump-landing task in sports, we may jump and land at different directions instead of one direction. During landing period, single-leg landing is generally considered at a higher risk of injury than double-leg landing. However, there were few studies on discussing about musculoskeletal responses when landed at different directions. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of different jump-landing directions on lower extremity muscle activations when performing single-leg landing.
