Abstract

The purpose of this study were to evaluate the different of knee kinematics analysis after ACLD and ACLR during landing performances. The participants were instructed to finish counter moment jump (CMJ) with arms free 5 times as hard as possible with Vicon motion system and two force platforms. The ACLD showed a significant less knee flexion degree at the peak vertical GRF compared with others. Our founding was similar to the present studies; the impulse during landing among three groups was almost the same, but the RF EMG showed lower after two ACL groups, especially in ACLD.
