Free webinar – Investigating and Preventing Sport-Related Ankle Sprain Injury

Ankle sprain is common in sports and therefore it is worth investigating and preventing. The webinar will first cover a series of biomechanics studies on ankle inversion sprain mechanism. This involved a forensic motion analysis on video footages of real injury incidents. The second part will present a wearable anti-sprain system to prevent the injury
