Abstract


The purpose of this study was to clarify the effect of the soft knee brace, " knee supporter " in continuous squat motion under the fatigue condition. The results were summarized as follows; 1) the influence of knee supporter to the squat motion was different according to the subjects' characteristics, but in Wear condition, almost all subjects was getting to be improved the stability of knee flexion-extension motion. 2) In Wear condition, the stability of the hip joint was decreased gradually while fatigued, because the hip joint was the compensation of knee flexion-extension motion. 3) In the variation of the changes in the knee joint flexion-extension motion from the 1st set to 10th set, the subjects could be divided into three types.
