Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


Badminton has gained large amount of participants with its effect of participants’ whole body physical capacity exercising (Jérgensen et al., 1987). Lunge as one of the most basic and important footworks in badminton movement has been studied (Fu et al, 2009). The study was aimed to investigate the plantar pressure characters of both professional-levelled and amateur-levelled badminton players. Comparative analysis were made to illustrate the different loading features while performing the right-forward lunge step between badminton players of two levels.
