Table 3. Comparison of un-taped and taped ankle conditions for peak normalised activity mean (┬▒standard deviation) [95% confidence intervals]) in the tibialis anterior (TA), peroneus longus (PL), peroneus brevis (PB), and soleus (SOL) for the right leg when it was either the inside or outside leg of a planned cut in the Y-shaped agility test in experienced basketball players (n = 20). % = normalised electromyography measured as a percentage; p = significance; d = effect size.
