Biomechanics of male and female ACL-intact and ACL-reconstructed athletes during a jump-cut maneuver
In this study we used X-ray Reconstruction of Moving Morphology (XROMM) to compare the kinetic and knee kinematic measurements from male and female ACL-intact (ACLINT) and ACL-reconstructed (ACLREC) subjects during a jump-cut maneuver. We recruited twenty subjects, 10 were ACLINT (5 males, 5 females) and 10 were ACLREC (4 males, 6 females; five years post-surgery). Each subject performed was asked to perform a jump-cut maneuver by landing on a single leg and performing a 45° side-step cut (
