Background:Vertical jump is a motor task which requires the interaction of nervous and musculoskeletal system. Variability in musculoskeletal structure has the potential to influence locomotor function. This study examined acute anthropometric measure in relation to vertical jump performance.
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to find the relation between foot anthropometry and vertical jump performance.
Procedure: The purpose and the procedure of the research were explained to the subjects and on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria, the subjects who were willing to participate in the research were selected. Total n=100 subjects were explained about how to perform vertical jump. After obtaining their anthropometric values, the subjects performed three trials of vertical jump and the average of performance parameters were recorded using ios based My Jump 2 app and was recorded as the final value.
Results: Data collected were entered and analyzed by SPSS version 16.0 for windows (IBM). Descriptive statistics was used to analyse baseline characteristics for all parameters of subjects. Mean score of all the parameters of subjects were taken and were analysed using Pearson’s method of correlation. There is negative correlation between weight of the subject, jump height, foot length, toe length, heel length, navicular height and BMI. Positive correlation was found between vertical jump height and ROM of dorsi flexion and plantar flexion as well as calf girth.
Conclusion:There is correlation between different parameters of foot anthropometry and vertical jump performance in normal individuals.
