The examiner monitored for any compensatory movement through the lower-extremity and pelvis. This testing technique was chosen as it replicated the same hip position and

After a 10-minute rest time, each participant was seated in a comfortable and upright position with a 110° hip flexion and 60° knee flexion to generate maximal voluntary isometric contraction (MVIC) of the knee joint. 11 , 12 Their trunk, pelvis, and thigh were fixed to the dynamometer chair

The location of the hip joint center was estimated as a function of the distance between the digitized left and right anterior superior iliac spines. 19 Ankle and knee joint centers were defined as the

with ACL injury. 18 However, little is known of the effect of ACL injury on hip muscle activity. The muscles of the hip joint, specifically the gluteal muscle group, play a pivotal role in lower-extremity kinematics. 19 For example, the gluteus medius (GMED) stabilizes the pelvis and controls femoral

To minimize hip rotation, the participant was secured at the hip at the middle of the anterior pelvis to the treatment table using a seat belt. To avoid any contralateral hip flexion that may
