2, cross ligaments: make the knee joint in motion before and after stability.

3, half-moon plate: it is like the knee inside the pressure relief pad, increase stability to reduce impact. Is our common part of the movement is easy to wear.

What sports meeting causes the injury of knee joint at ordinary times?

2. Taekwondo and football
The technical characteristics of taekwondo and football require rapid flexion and extension of knee joint, which is easy to cause ligament strain. Novice because of the movement is not standard, in order to complete the movement is often in violation of the human physiological structure of the state of force, meniscus by sharp grinding, twisting and tearing.

3, basketball, badminton and other jumping sports
Due to the characteristics of jumping sports, such as athletes often in a semi-squat position of the knee joint, especially repeated rapid turn and stop and rotation will make the load of the knee joint sharply increase, stability decline, it is easy to lead to acute and chronic knee injury.

Especially when going down the mountain, in addition to their own weight, the knee joint should also bear the force of rushing down, so that the impact will increase the injury to the knee joint.
