Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are common in movement tasks incorporating sudden changes in velocity, such as sidtestepping. Current techniques adopted to quantify ACL strain are invasive as well as limited to slow, quasi-static move- ments. This paper presents a method for non-invasive measurement of ACL elongation during dynamic movement tasks, validation of the method, and demonstrates its applicability to the analysis of sidestep movements
