Formell tittel

Movement related factors influencing injury frequency in Norwegian soldiers

Formål

Specific groups of Soldiers show high frequencies of movement related injuries. The aim of this part of the project is the identification of movement related factors that may contribute to an increased risk of sustaining an injury. 

Prosjektbeskrivelse

Prospective study design. Kinematic analysis of drop jumps and running will be conducted. It is hypothesized that variability in the execution of these movements might correlate with high injury frequencies.
