    The newest volume in this series examines 16 peer-reviewed papers that reflect the latest worldwide research in the effort to reduce the risk of injury in winter sports.

    4 sections cover:

    Skiing and Snowboarding Equipment — 5 papers evaluate release bindings for World Cup freestyle skiers; current binding settings standards; the means of developing a learning binding for beginner skiers; the many variables involved with on-snow ski boot pressure measurements; and an apparatus for measuring mechanical properties of snowboard boot/binding systems in bending.

    Epidemiology — 7 papers discuss the differences, including injuries and overall injury rate, between alpine skiing, telemark skiing, and snowboarding.

    Knee Biomechanics — 2 papers study the use of a mechanical knee simulator and "load cases" that may help in understanding the high injury rate to knee ligaments.

    Specific Problems — 2 papers investigate the complexities of medical evacuations by helicopter; and the surgical treatment of tibia plateau fractures and avulsions of the tibial spine sustained in downhill skiing accidents.

    Audience: This volume is a valuable asset to all professionals in the skiing industry including instructors, coaches, sports equipments manufacturers, industry engineers, and ski area managers. It is also an important resource for physicians; lawyers.
