ABSTRACT
In this study, elbow and knee joint kinematics of the non stationary ice hockey slap shot was investigated using photogrammetric methods. 4 right handed elite Turkish ice hockey players from various teams participated in the study in order to scientifically obtain a general description of elbow and knee joint kinematics during a non-stationary slap shot. The loading, contact and follow through phases were analyzed using a dual camera and Pictran software system. The results showed an elbow angle pattern consistent with previous studies however a general knee angle strategy could not be obtained.
