opposing forces caused by road gradient, air resistance, acceleration, and friction. These forces are calculated using 9 different measurements: 3 accelerometers to measure displacements in the x , y , and z directions; frontal air pressure using a small port at the front of the device; environmental

Conclusions Our study shows that even limited tape straps are capable of altering ankle joint kinematics prior to TD during the landing
