Abstract

Three elite ice hockey players performed forward skating with twin axis electro-goniometers placed posterior to the right ankle and rear foot. The data were gathered at a sampling frequency of 200 Hz. The use of mini notebook computer and data acquisition card allowed for a completely portable system. Maximum and minimum range of motion data were averaged for inversion-eversion and dorsiflexion-plantarflexion motions were examined throughout one stride cycle.
