THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN VERTICAL JUMP AND HOP TEST FOR DISTANCE (PILOT STUDY)
Keywords: Asymmetry, hop test, double platfom
AbstractLateral asymmetries in the lower limbs (LL) in motor actions are frequently treated as a dysfunction. In literature it has been reported that force differences of 15% between lower limbs increases the probability of injuries risk (Petschnig et al., 1998). The purpose of this study was to determine the sensitivity of two functional tests in detecting asymmetries in the lower limbs (hop test and impulse in the double force platform) and to compare the indexes of asymmetry between tests.
