Purpose: To compare the vertical ground reaction force and knee joint motions during landing between half-roll and sunback spikes
Methods: Eight female Thai national Sepak Takraw players, age between 18-35 years, volunteered for this study. Each subject was asked to perform 5 repetitions of a half-roll or a Sunback spike, interspersed with 10 minutes rest between sets, during simulated competition with 9 high-speed cameras and 1 force plate setting. Data were analyzed using mean and standard deviation and the statistical significant was detected using pair t-test at p-value <.05.
Results: (1) The average value of peak vertical ground reaction force of a sunback showed significantly higher than that of a half roll landing spike (p<.05). (2) The average value of knee joint internal rotation of a half roll spike showed significantly higher range of motion than that of a sunback landing spike (p<.05).
Conclusion: Vertical ground reaction force of a sunback spike showed significantly higher than a half-roll landing spike, while the knee joint range of motion showed a greater range of knee extension in a half-rolls than in a sunback spike. Therefore, it is suggested that the range of motion of knee joint may directly effects on vertical ground reaction force.
