Similarly, a study on soccer players concluded that cutting in response to virtual defensive players triggered distinct lower limb postures and knee moments. 38 In basketball games, the cutting maneuver is also often accompanied by ball dribbling. Cutting with dribbling

Following placement of all the anatomical and technical markers, the participant was asked to stand on the treadmill for a static trial. Standing position was controlled using a graphic

The device did not output a torque or power metric, so it is not possible to determine how each individual user relied on the exoskeleton for negative or
