Witchalls, Jeremy; McDonald, Cameron; Richardson, Alice; Newman, Phil

Description

Introduction: The Army has a high incidence of musculoskeletal injury, with up to 81% of injuries occurring at or below the knee. Fitness testing using the Basic Fitness Assessment (BFA) provides data that may be suitable to screen for injury risk. The aim of this investigation was to assess the association between standard BFA tests, and injury risk to anatomical sites in military cadets.
