Women soccer players are five times more likely to tear an anterior cruciate ligament in the knee than their male counterparts. Researchers at the FIFA Medical Center of Excellence in Regensburg, who regularly operate on injured players, are trying to find out why.Their studies reveal, for example, that women land differently than men after a jump, and that the shoes they wear - which are just smaller versions of those made for men - also need to be redesigned. Biomechanics experts in Freiburg are now developing a soccer shoe with women in mind.
