Title:
The effect of skiboot settings on tibio-femoral abduction and rotation during standing and simulated skiing 
Abstract:
Ski boots are designed to transfer high forces from the skier to the ski. For this purpose they are made of stiff materials and constrain the leg of the skier to an unnatural position. To overcome the problem of unnatural knee posture, the ski boots can be adjusted in the frontal plane as well as in the horizontal plane by the canting mechanism and the ``v-position'', respectively. Canting enables lateral and medial orientation of the shaft with respect to the base of the boot. The ``v-position'...    »
