Research Title: Developing a scoring system for the single leg squat

This project is to design a new clinical test for medical professionals to use in screening athletes. Specifically, it will highlight athletes that are at a greater risk of developing an anterior cruciate ligament injury - one of the most serious injuries an athlete can sustain. Once armed with this information medical professionals can then implement prevention strategies to reduce the incidence of this injury in athletes.
