Measuring knee stability in soccer players. 

This project was a collaboration between the University of Cantabria, Spain, and the soccer team Racing de Santander.

We compared the data from a force plate, an accelerometer and a smartphone (myankle app). The goal was to analyze whether a soccer team could use a smartphone to measure knee stability in those players with and without Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries.

The left side below shows the comparison of the three methods, with excellent correlation. The right side shows the field comparison between the accelerometer and the smartphone in players with and without ACL injuries.

With this project we provided the soccer team with the ability to compare healthy players to ACL injured players and track the progress of the rehabilitation process by only using a phone.
