A qualitative assessment tool to identify athletes with high knee abduction moments during cutting: cutting movement assessment score (CMAS)

Paul Jones with Thomas Donelon and Thomas Dos’Santos

Given the limited accessibility of 3D motion analysis for injury screening of athletes, there is a need to develop a field-based screening tool to identify athletes with ‘at-risk’ cutting mechanics. The aim of this preliminary study was to assess the validity of a qualitative assessment tool for cutting (CMAS) to estimate the magnitude of peak knee abduction moments (KAM) against ‘Gold Standard’ 3D motion analysis. The presented CMAS was able to rank cutting trials based on the magnitude of KAM. It is therefore a potential method to identify athletes who generate high KAM during cutting.
