  1. Mean peak knee flexion angles (α kn(mx)I and α kn(mx)N ), peak knee extensor moments (M kn(mx)I and M kn(mx)N ) and support moments at M kn(mx) (Msup I and Msup N ) in the injured and non-injured leg respectively, with standard deviations for CONT, ACLR and ACLD. A * indicates a significant difference (p < 0.05) from CONT.
