Abstract
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of fatigue on balance in females with ACLR. A total of 14 female ACLR participants (age= 19.64±1.5 years; height = 163.52±6.18cm; weight = 62.6±13.97kg) were used in this study. All participants completed a balance task, before and again after a fatigue protocol that consisted of a stationary squatting task. There was a significant difference in COP velocity and COP sway path between the pre-fatigue and post-fatigue conditions as COP velocity and COP sway path significantly increased from pre-fatigue to post-fatigue. Results indicate that female ACLR individuals have significantly greater COP velocity and COP area after fatigue.
