The aim of the study was to analyze the effect of knee compression bandage and arm swing control on the maximum horizontal distance and ground reaction force variables in standing long jump. Adult male (n=8; mean age, 22.75±1.98 years; mean heights, 1.77±0.03 m; mean weights, 71.82±12.87 kg) participated in the experiment. The results obtained from variables of ground reaction force (GRF) in medial lateral, anterior posterior (AP), vertical (V) direction, resultant GRF (RGRF), decay rate (%), and maximum horizontal distance (MHD) were as follows; MHD, AP GRF, VGRF, RGRF (AP-V), and ratio of load reduction (%) showed more effective result under both wearing of knee compression bandage and arm swing. In analysis of main effects, MHD, AP GRF, VGRF, and RGRF showed more increased value in case of wearing of knee compression bandage than as was not. While arm swing during standing long jump (SLJ) works as important factor to MHD, showed more effective factor in exercise rehabilitation, injury prevention and swell treatment etc. in wearing of worn knee compression bandage. Therefore it was assumed that arm swing and wearing of knee compression bandage may improve the performance of SLJ. Also, the characteristics of knee compression bandage suggest that it can be a great help for those participating in exercise rehabilitation.
