DETERMINING INITIAL KNEE JOlNT LOADiNG DURING A SINGLE LIMB DROP LANDING: REDUCING SOFT TISSUE ERRORS

Mark Lake, Josh Isherwood, Adam Clansey

Abstract


This study examined the influence of modeling approaches on lower limb on transient knee joint moments during single leg landings. A typical GDoF joint model was compared to a constrained 3DoF model. For peak moments and rates of moment increases there was no difference between joint models. Earlier, and greater moments were obtained using data from a 3D-printed plate moulded to each individual's tibia. Maintaining high frequencies in the dataset using the 3D-printed plate was important for determining initial joint loading and associated risk factors for sports injuries.
