Abstract

In the field of sports scienceļ¼Œsupport taping for ankle inversion sprain has often been used. The motion of ankle joint would be limited with support taping for ankle inversion. In order to clarify the effects of the ankle taping and to examine characteristics of the taping, we had constructed a system to measure the distance between the metatarsus first head and the floor with 3D motion analysis system, and to measure the planter pressure patterns during the ankle inversion with pressure monitoring system. When the eight subjects were instructed to inverse their ankles as much as possible with and without taping, there was a difference in the distances between taping and no taping.
