Values are presented as mean±standard deviation unless otherwise specified. Positive value (+) means upward and forward direction.

NT: non-taping, KT: kinesiology taping, PT: placebo taping, P1: from set position to rear block exit, P2: from rear block exit to initial contact of rear leg, P3: from initial contact of rear leg to take-off of rear leg, P4: from take-off of rear leg to initial contact of front leg.
