, Sartor, and Bonomi ( 2016 ) were able to identify a limited number (i.e., 1–2 exercises) of resistance training exercises with >80% accuracy during laboratory-based validation testing with research-grade accelerometers. Additionally, Chang, Chen, and Canny ( 2007 ) found high accuracy using a two

influence of ankle braces during a variety of functional tests such as the vertical jump, agility drills, and speed tests. These studies usually evaluate the effect of the brace only on performance measures such as the height, distance, or speed for these tests, respectively. Therefore, when authors

Thus, aerobic fitness tests are recommended to assess the clinical response of the cardiopulmonary system, during maximum effort, to develop and implement protocols of exercise training for this population. The gold standard for assessing aerobic capacity is measuring maximal oxygen
