The Biomechanics Department of the National Olympic Academy conducted a landing technique test for the first time with rolling made by elite parkour players.
Iran NOA; Tehran: The purpose of this test, in addition to
reviewing the technique and describing the landing-rolling movement pattern,
was to study some biomechanical risk factors for lower limbs injuries in
performing the roll jump technique in skilled male parkour players.
Also, the relationship between the kinematic variables of the
moment of jump and the forces at the moment of landing were of the most
important cases examined in this test.
In this test, the important biomechanical variables such as
absolute and relative angles of the lower limbs at the moment of landing and cutting
and vertical forces on the joints were measured by two high-speed cameras and a
dynamometer plate for qualitative and smooth analysis. The three stages of
production (when jumping), absorption and distribution of the force during
landing were significant.
