Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the pattern and variability of inter-joint coordination during a high-demand activity after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). All subjects needed performed a single-leg landing followed cutting as quickly as possible. Our findings indicated that the patients with ACLR had similar patterns of interjoint coordination in performing a single leg landing and cutting comparing to the age, sex, body weight and sport-matched healthy subjects. Assessing the inter-joint coordination as well as facilitating the coordination in clinical treatments might improve the high-demand activities on ACLR subjects.
