assessments focus on bilateral landing tasks. 6 , 9 Although both single- and double-leg landings are important to consider, double-leg landing tasks often mask compensations that an individuals may use to protect or support the injured limb.

the effect of different epoch times (increasing the epoch length tends to mask temporary dips in activity) on wear time, sedentary behavior, and physical activity, showing significant differences in all three with epoch length ( Banda et al., 2016 ). Finally, there is a need for a cut-point set

Cut angles were measured from the center of the force plate, and the corresponding line of movement was delineated using masking tape so that it was clearly evident to participants. The stance phase of the cut movement was similarly defined as the duration
