Clinical Study - Movement Analysis helps identify season ending injury risk in NCAA D1 Athletes
Objective: This study examined the ability of a pre-season performance motion analysis (PMA) screening using a markerless motion capture system to identify NCAA D1 football players who would experience non-contact season ending injuries.
Using four clusters of variables (i.e., vulnerability, MCS composite score, strength/power discrepancy, torque differences) 5 players were identified as at-risk for season-ending injuries. Although two individuals were reported as false positives, there were no false negatives (i.e., suffered a season ending non-contact injury but not identified by the MCS testing).
