Table 3 Peak angles of knee abduction, knee flexion and hip flexion during DLVDJ, DLFJ tasks

From: The influence of kinesio taping on trunk and lower extremity motions during different landing tasks: implications for anterior cruciate ligament injury

Landing Characteristic (°) Task Without KT (Baseline)α With KTα P value Effect size and 95% Confidence Interval (Lower limit -Upper limit) Change Relative to Baseline (%)
