Passive plantar-flexor flexibility relating to ankle mechanics during drop landings.
The dataset is generated in relation to human movement of the ankle. It contains three-dimensional kinematic data of the lower limb during single limb drop landing tasks from different take off heights ( 32 cm. and 72 cm.) and surface electromyographic activity of four lower limb muscles (tibialis anterior, soleus, medial gastrocnemius, and lateral gastrocnemius) during the landing tasks, as well as ground force data generated during the landing tasks. The landing technique of forty eight consenting males were analysed for approximately two hours per participant in the Biomechanics Research Laboratory at the University of Wollongong to collect the data. The data was collected by PhD candidate, John Whitting, who was assisted by a team of trained research assistants, using an OptoTRAK 3020 motion analysis system to collect the kinematic data, two Kistler force platforms to collect the ground reaction force data and a Noraxon Telemyo 900 EMG system to collect the muscle activity data.
