Abstract

The purpose of this study was to present the 3-dimensional ankle joint kinematics of an eversion ankle sprain case with MBIM motion analysis technique. The results showed that the maximum eversion angle occurred 0.20 seconds after trampled. At that time, the ankle joint was 25° everted, 42° externally rotated, and 15° plantarflexed. The Maximum eversion velocity was 210deg/s. The results from the MBIM technique could contribute to the understanding of the injury mechanism of ankle sprain injury.
