Good morning,

I am a PhD student doing research into jump landing biomechanics and ACL injury. I was wondering how other researchers doing ACL work have addressed the ethical issues of re-creating the ACL injury mechanism during their studies. Has anyone had an injury occur during testing? What types of safeguards do you put in place when testing potentially injurious movements?

Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated!
