Title: A comparison of athletic tape and the cloth wrap in restricting ankle supination during a maximal vertical jump
Author: Childs, Shannon
Abstract: This study examined the ability of the closed gibney with heel locks and figure-of-eights, and the cotton ankle wrap applied using the Louisiana technique followed with an overlay of athletic tape in the same manner in their ability to limit ankle supination during a maximal vertical jump. For this study, 12 athletes from the 2001-2002 Humboldt State University intercollegiate men’s basketball participated. Data was collected using 2D motion analysis software. A repeated measures ANOVA adjusted for multiple comparisons with a Post Hoc Bonferroni was utilized to analyze the differences between the baseline (no ankle support applied), pretest (with the application of support), and posttest (after 15 minutes of exercise) measurements for each of the two testing conditions. The data showed the closed gibney significantly reduced ankle supination from the baseline to the pretest measurements (p = .001). While no significance existed between the baseline to the posttest (p =.098), there was significance between the baseline and posttest (p = .003). The cotton ankle wrap showed significance between the baseline and pretest (p = .002), the pretest and posttest (p = .024), and the pretest to posttest (p = .009) measurements. Comparing the two testing conditions showed no significance between baseline (p = 1.00), pretest (p = 1.00), and posttest (p = 1.00).
