Objectives: Sport participation always carries the risk of injury. The aim of this paper is to investigate the incidence of sports injury, the role of medical diagnostic devices and concepts of sports injury prevention. Various medical diagnostic devices are not always helpful without any damage. The conclusion of this study gives viewpoints of clinical medicine and biomedical engineering on sports injury. Highlighting the importance of sports injury with regard to incidence rates and risk factor is also the main goal of the study [1]. Results: The study population includes patients and their family members from the outpatient department of Tzuo-Ying Armed Forces General Hospital in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan. The data demonstrates the most common sites of injuries are ankles (34.4%). Regarding the knowledge of sports injury prevention, 38.3 % believe that sports protective devices using can decrease risk of injury and 51.5 % think that enough warm-up exercise will make exercise course smoothly. Regarding actions taken by persons after the occurrence of a sports injury, more than half (54.7%) of them attempt to treat the condition themselves at the initial stage, and only 33.6% look for medical attention immediately. It warns policy makers that the high rate of people ignore the sports injury and taking no thoughts about sports injury may result in more costs of the medical service at the later stage. Conclusions: The results show that increasing population levels of the knowledge about sports injury prevention and providing realistic medical diagnostic devices are important.
