Postural stability diminishes with longer activity, which may increase the risk of injury. Tape can increase stability, but this effect diminishes after exercise.


To investigate the influence of ankle taping on postural stability during soccer-specific activity.


10 male, injury-free, semiprofessional soccer players.


A 45-min treadmill protocol replicating the activity profile of soccer match play—with and without ankle tape. Postural stability was assessed every 7.5 min, requiring response to sudden ankle plantar flexion and inversion during single-leg stance.

Main Outcome Measure:

Reaction time to perturbation and center- of-gravity (CoG) displacement.


Reaction time was significantly longer (P < .05) with longer exercise for both movements and conditions. No significant effect was evident in CoG displacement. For both outcome measures a nonsignificant benefit of taping was observed during the first 22.5 min of activity.


Prolonged exposure to soccer-specific activity negates any beneficial effect of taping in improving postural stability.

metrics relating to distance and the derivatives including velocity have limited scope in a sport such as soccer where the activity profile is self-paced, and the player dictates the activity profile to a large extent. Embedded technologies such as the accelerometer, however, enable a relatively high

extension–flexion repetitions, 3 repeated countermovement jumps, 4 and treadmill running 5 fail to adequately reflect the activity profile of soccer match-play, and therefore, interpretation in relation to injury epidemiology and etiology is limited. In developing an experimental approach to the problem

Soccer is characterized by an irregular, intermittent, and multidirectional activity profile, increasing the complexity of its mechanical demands. The mechanical demands of soccer and subsequent injury risk might be further influenced by the nature of the playing surface, 1 an extrinsic risk
