, two-legged jump ( Davies & Jones, 1993 ), but challenges exist when using this measure in older adults. Although the vertical jump is a functional movement, a maximal jumping test may have serious adverse effects in participants with osteoporosis, degenerative disc disease, or osteoarthritis

vertical jump test Prior to testing, each participant performed three trials of a maximal vertical jump (one-footed take-off) on a Vertec (JumpUSA, Sunnyvale, CA). The trial with the highest jump was recorded and used to set a target for the DVJ task. This target was adjusted for each participant as a

attempts on an analogue handgrip dynamometer (Smedley’s dynamometer; Scandidact, Odder, Denmark) while standing. The dynamometer was adjusted to hand size. The result was divided by body weight for analysis. 20 Muscular power was measured by a vertical jump test as the highest vertical displacement (in

The use of virtual reality in screening healthy athletes resulted in reduced lower-extremity joint motion during landing in a sport-realistic virtual-reality condition compared with standard drop-jump testing ( DiCesare, Kiefer, Bonnette, & Myer, 2019 ).

completed 3 CMJ on the force platform separated by 30-second rest periods between trials. To ensure participants were jumping in the vertical direction, a Vertec (Knoxville, TN) was placed adjacent to the force platform as a target for the CMJ attempts. The second vertical jump test consisted of 2 trials of

Performance Tests A set of laboratory measurements including a 6-min walk test (6MWT), maximal isometric knee extension test (KE), vertical jump test (VJ), and maximal isometric hand grip test (GF) to assess cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness were performed during the laboratory visit. However, some
