A Study on Foot Pressure and Kinematic Analysis by Event in Performing Speed Climbing

This study aimed to examine the kinematic characteristics of speed climbing on the magnitude of foot pressure when performing start climbing movement. The subjects of the experiment were seven athletes participating in domestic and international speed climbing competitions. In this explorative study, we divided five Events (i.e., 1-5) across the start until the left knee heigh was located to the ipsilateral hip joint. Each athlete’s foot pressure and Event 1 were analyzed using a foot pressure and motion capture system. We found the knee angle of as a result of the analysis, the athlete with the best performance showed the lowest plantar pressure overall, and it was found that the foot contact area was minimal. In addition, for fast acceleration movement, the knee height should be positioned quickly up to the hip joint, and at this time, the closer the knee angle is to 90 degrees for effective stepping in the next movement, the more effective it is. In future studies, if foot pressure and muscle activity are analyzed simultaneously using an EMG sensor, more reliable results will be obtained, and it is judged that it will be essential primary data for speed climbing research, which has almost no research on performance.
