Does anyone have any data or literature on the impact force of a person
jumping from height to the ground, specifically a truck driver jumping down
off a truck tailgate to ground level?

What force is imparted to the legs, back, etc? Any studies on the risk of
future muscoloskeletal damage from repeated jumping?

Any info would be helpful. Thanks!
