Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine if known biomechanical and neuromuscular ACL injury risk factors obtained from single-planar jump-landings and multi-planar side-jumps can resemble the demands of side-cutting maneuvers, a known high-risk ACL injury movement for this population.METHODS: Twenty-four female soccer and handball players (mean ± SD: age: 17 ± 1 year; height: 172 ± 66 cm; mass: 67 ± 9 kg) performed a series of functional tasks including two single-planar jump-landings, two multi-planar side-jumps and a sports-specific side-cutting maneuver on their dominant leg. Frontal and sagittal plane knee and hip joint kinematics and kinetics were calculated from three-dimensional motion analysis, whereas hamstring and quadriceps muscle pre-activity levels were measured with surface electromyography.RESULTS: The sports-specific side-cut was distinguished by more knee flexion at initial contact, greater abduction angles and external knee abduction moments, higher biceps femoris and semitendinosus muscle pre-activity levels than both the single-planar jump-landings and multi-planar side-jumps (p < .05).
