Introduction: Detailed kinematic descriptions of real anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury situations are limited to the knee only.
Aim: To describe hip and ankle kinematics as well as foot position relative to the center of mass (COM) in ACL injury situations using a model-based image-matching (MBIM) technique. The distance between the projection of the COM on the ground and the base of support (BOS) (COM_BOS) normalized to the femur length was also evaluated.
Method: Ten ACL injury video sequences from women's handball and basketball were analyzed. Hip and ankle joint kinematics were obtained using MBIM.
