Effect of Ankle Bracing Vs. Taping on Vertical Jump Performance

This study was to investigate the effects of ankle taping and bracing on ankle plantar and dorsiflexion range of motion (ROM) and vertical jump performance. Twenty males with no history of current or recent lower extremity injury were recruited to participate. Subjects randomly performed under three conditions on three different days, (T) taping, (B) bracing, and (C) control. Ankle ROM was assessed at four time periods each day: pre-condition, post-condition, post-warm-up and post-jump. After following all the condition application, subjects completed a dynamic warm-up and then performed three maximal vertical jumps on a force plate. Relative ground reaction force (relGRF) and relative impact force (relIF) were measured by the force plate, while vertical jump height (VJH) was estimated using the time-in-air equation. Ankle dorsi-plantar flexion ROM was measured using a standard goniometer and expressed in total degrees.
