Can you identify the level of ACL injury risk of your patients or athletes? 


If you would like to find out, you can take part in our National Science Foundation and Research Council of Norway funded research project. 


We are evaluating a new online test created and validated at Michigan Technological University, University of Greenwich, Norwegian School of Sport Sciences, and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. If you complete this anonymous survey below, we will provide you with immediate feedback about your ACL injury risk perception skill compared to verified experts from North America and Europe. 


The following link will lead you to the web-based survey.


This survey will take approximately 20 minutes and is intended to be completed on a laptop or desktop computer and will not work on a mobile device (as video clips will be shown).  


Please respond before May 21st, 2014 to ensure your input is included in the study. Additionally, please forward the survey link/message to sports medicine personnel (MD’s, PT’s, and AT’s) and coaches(Sport/Strength & Conditioning).


Your help is greatly appreciated!
