    Authored by the world's leading experts, this new publication examines some of the leading causes of serious snow sport injuries, including prevention and treatment. Thirteen peer-reviewed papers cover:

    EQUIPMENT ISSUES examine:
    • Differences in pressure distribution inside the ski boot when using carving skis or conventional skis
    • Development of a dynamic model for the performance of carving, which may be utilized to improve binding design
    • Information concerning the possibility of developing release bindings for skiboards
    • Present state of knowledge concerning binding function and their relationship to skiing injuries
    • Established policies, practices, and products, which if appropriately applied could quickly and effectively reduce the risk of most common below knee injuries
    • Proposed modification of the ISO recommendations for ski binding settings

    EPIDEMIOLOGY addresses:
    • Results of a two-year study evaluating 5,362 injuries sustained by Alpine skiers, snowboarders, and telemark skiers in Norway
    • Lower leg injuries, especially tibia and ankle fractures, resulting from skiboarding and Alpine skiing
    • Method of comparing the relative incidence of tibia fractures and anterior cruciate ligament injuries from ski areas all around the world
    • Effect of ski shape on the occurrence of downhill injuries, by evaluating ski injuries in Australia during the 2000 ski season
    • Evaluation of the incidence of femoral shaft fractures and tibial plateau fractures in Alpine skiers
    • Observations concerning the prevalence of serious knee injuries in free style World Championship skiers

    Audience: This new publication is a valuable resource for sports medicine physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, biomechanics, sports physiologists, human biodynamics researchers, ski area management professionals, ski trade organizations, skiing equipment manufacturers, skiing coaches and trainers and any individual interested in this alpine sport.
