Keywords Sports Injury, Knee Joint, Anterior Cruciate Ligament, Joint 6-DOF Motion, Point Cluster Technique, Cluster Marker Measurement, Landing Motion
Outline Injuries in sports frequently occur in the lower extremity such as ankle sprain and anterior cruciate ligament damage. We use a motion analysis procedure called "point cluster technique" to provide biomechanical evidence for the mechanism of traumatic injury and intervention effect of prevention training.
