Table 3 Sum of squares, degrees of freedom, mean squares, F-values, p-values and coefficient of the N-way ANOVA with the dependent variable being dynamic anterior tibia translation

From: Healthy subjects with lax knees use less knee flexion rather than muscle control to limit anterior tibia translation during landing
