Abstract (englisch):

The purpose of this study was the biomechanical inter-leg evaluation in three team handball-specific side-cutting maneuvers. This should help to gain a better understanding how different movement executions potentially produce harmful demands to one or both knee joints. Therefore, eight competitive handball player performed the three most common side-cutting maneuvers to the right side (sode-cuttingmaneuver was performed with alternating or simultaneous steps) in a game-like setting in a movment laboratory. Movement data were collected with a 3D motion capture system and two linked 3D force plates. The analysis of the side-cutting maneuvers revealed increased vertical and medio-lateral ground reaction force components on the left leg, which initiated the side-cutting maneuver. The peak knee abduction moments in the weight acceptance phase did not differ between the left and the right leg in all three side-cutting maneuvers. However, higher peak knee valgus occurred at the left leg, wich increased with increasing stance time. The results of this study indicate that during the performance of handball-specific side-cutting to the right, the left knee joint has a greater risk to get injured. ... mehr
