- Persons without cognitive impairment are influenced by dual task capacities.
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE
Soccer players are exposed to both cognitive and motor difficulties simultaneously during training and matches. Player performance is dependent on physical fitness, tactical, technical and mental components where more than one source of information must be processed. This is often referred to as dual task (DT). Cognitive motor interference (commonly referred to as DT) is one of the most widely studied and diversely relevant considerations in motor learning, skill development, and rehabilitation.
The aim of the present study was to compare the knee force production sense error (KFPSE) of young soccer athletes with the force that they have generated under single and dual-task conditions.
Return to sport should include dual task training, even in musculoskeletal conditions, such as ACL-R, high ankle sprain, and patellofemoral joint dysfunction.
- This study examined the athletes’ abilities to produce and sense their own knee forces, under dual and single task conditions.
