[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects on ankle jump performance of different compression intensities applied to different regions of the lower leg. [Subjects] Fifteen healthy males (mean age, 21.6 ± 0.9 years old) participated in this study. [Method] We first measured the deep aponeurosis displacement of the gastrocnemius medial heads generated by compression using a sphygmomanometer and a manchette of all participants. The manchette was set on the proximal or distal regions of the calf, and compression was applied at 50,100 or 150 mmHg. We measured the ankle jump height on a pulley stand under each compression condition. [Results] Ankle jump height with proximal region compression of 150 mmHg was significantly lower than that with no compression. [Conclusion] The results suggest that ankle jump height doesn't change with distal compression or proximal compression of 100 mmHg or less.
