|Abstract:||Introduction: Exergaming – physically active gaming – is cognitively and physically challenging, and, therefore, has great potential for sports rehabilitation, for example after knee injuries. Before it can be recommended for rehabilitation, the biomechanics during exergaming needs to be understood. The occurrence of high-risk movement patterns for knee injuries, an abducted, internally rotated knee at 10-30° of flexion, needs to be monitored [1,2]. This study aimed to compare the amount of knee valgus (KV) and knee internal rotation (KIR) at 10-30° of knee flexion during different exercises of an immersive, high-intensive exergame in healthy athletes. Materials and Methods: Kinematics during a 25-minute exergame training (ExerCube)  were measured using marker-based motion capture (Vicon) in 18 athletes (9 female, 9 male) without prior knee injuries. The mean maximal KV and KIR angle during 10°- 30° knee flexion were compared between 9 exercises  using a two-way within-subject linear mixed model with post-hoc t-test. Results: A significantly higher KV compared to the other exercises, was found during the punch to the ipsilateral side of the investigated knee (Mean 8.5° (Standard Deviation 0.04°)) and high-touch to the contralateral side (8.5° (0.1°)). In addition, the ipsilateral KIR of the punch (13.2° (0.9°)), the high-touch (11.7° (0.6°)), and mid-touch (10.9° (1.3°)) were significantly larger than in the other exercises. Conclusion: High-touches, mid-touches, and punches result in knee kinematics related to an increased risk of injury in healthy athletes. The inclusion of these movements during exergame-based rehabilitation should be carefully managed and performed in later stages of rehabilitation.|
