Table 3 Peak ground reaction forces for all ankle support conditions

From: The effect of external ankle support on the kinematics and kinetics of the lower limb during a side step cutting task in netballers

  Standard Brace High Top
Vertical GRF 23.1 ± 0.8 23.3 ± 2.7 22.9 ± 2.2
Medial GRF 9.9 ± 0.7 10.1 ± 1.6 9.7 ± 1.4
Breaking GRF -7.0 ± 2.8 -6.9 ± 2.6 -6.8 ± 2.3
Propulsive GRF 1.6 ± 0.6 1.8 ± 0.3 1.7 ± 0.5
  1. Values are presented in degrees N / kg.Bwt as mean ± SD. Breaking (posterior) GRF is presented at negative as it acts in the opposite to that of the direction of motion.
