Table 4 Changes of limb symmetry index (SI) during SLDL and SLVDJ for knee abduction, knee flexion and hip flexion

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

Symmetry Index (%) Task Without KT (Baseline)α With KTα P value Effect size and 95% Confidence Interval (Lower limit -Upper limit) Change Relative to Baseline (%)
Knee abduction SLDL 0.4 ± 4.8 0.2 ± 3.6 0.850 -0.06 (-0.42 to 0.30) ↓ 51.2
SLVDJ 1.0 ± 6.5 -1.1 ± 3.5 0.089 -0.61 (-1.00 to -0.21) ↓ 213
Knee flexion SLDL 7.1 ± 13.3 7.7 ± 16.6 0.833 0.04 (-0.32 to 0.40) ↑ 9.2
SLVDJ 1.1 ± 11.0 -1.1 ± 10.7 0.446 -0.20 (-0.57 to 0.17) ↓ 200.9
Hip flexion SLDL -13.4 ± 17.0 -6.1 ± 21.1 0.161 0.34 (-0.03 to 0.72) ↑ 54.2
SLVDJ -6.1 ± 14.1 -3.6 ± 20.0 0.615 0.13 (-0.24 to 0.49) ↑ 41.3
