Cover Story (view full-size image): Ultimate frisbee involves frequent cutting motions, which have a high risk of ACL injury, especially for female players. To examine these high-risk movements in the real world, this study investigated the in-game cuts performed by female ultimate frisbee athletes. Lower-body kinematics and movement around the field were reconstructed from wearable lower-body inertial sensors worn by 12 female players during 16 league-sanctioned ultimate frisbee games. From these data, 422 cutting maneuvers were identified. Players on more competitive teams had higher speed and acceleration and reduced knee flexion during cutting, potentially putting them at a higher risk of ACL injury. These in-game measurements can also be used to specify controlled cutting movements in future laboratory studies. View this paper
