Investigating the presence of gender differences in cutting technique and the implication for ACL injury.
Dataset shows results generated in related to human movement of the leg and ankle. It includes three-dimensional kinematic data of the lower limb during a cutting and running task, surface electromyographic activity of 8 lower limb muscles during a cutting and running task and ground reaction force data generated during a cutting and running task. The cutting and running technique of 15 males and 15 female consenting touch football players was analysed in the Biomechanics Research Laboratory at University of Wollongong, where the data was collected by BSc (Hons) candidate who was assisted by a team of trained research assistants. Data was collected for approximately 2 hours per participant to generate the datasets using an OptoTRAK 3020 motion analysis system to collect the kinematic data, two Kistler force platforms to collect the ground reaction force data and a Noraxon Telemyo 900 EMG system to collect the muscle activity data. In addition to instruments, the data was also sourced from survey responses, text, images and statistcs.
