The objective of this project is to design, produce, and test an under-binding ski plate which minimizes the risk of ACL injury due to the two main mechanisms of ACL injury in Alpine skiers; phantom foot and boot induced anterior drawer (BIAD). These two mechanisms of injury have yet to be addressed by a single ski binding design. Our final prototype is designed to absorb loads prior to the injury threshold.
