THE EFFECT OF TAPING ON MOTION AND PLANTAR PRESSURE DURING ANKLE INVERSION

Abstract

In the field of the sports science and the clinical medicine,taping of ankle joint has been often applied to prevent the injury of ankle sprain by fixing the ankle joint tightly. While the motion of ankle joint would be limited and changed with taping, there are quite a few reports about the change. In order to clarify effects of the taping and to examine characteristics of the ankle taping, we had constructed a system to measure the distance between the metatarsus first head and the floor with a 3D motion analysis system, and to measure planter pressure pattern during the ankle inversion with pressure monitoring system. When the subjects were instructed to ankle inversion as much as possible, obvious differences were found in the distances and pressure patterns.
