Is hand-held dynamometry
useful for the measurement of quadriceps strength in older people?
Results found with average difference variables in the current study are similar to that found in other studies assessing left-right leg imbalance reliability through single leg hops (Hopper et al., 2002, Reid et al., 2007) and isokinetic dynamometry
(Impellizzeri et al., 2008).
Mean, standard deviation and correlation per gender of isometric lumbar extension dynamometry
results, Rio Grande do Sul, 2017 (n=47).
Another aspect to be considered is that the knee isokinetic dynamometry
was performed immediately after KT removal (not during its use), which could have affected our results.
The tests with the highest number of very low results for the total population were those of dynamometry
and the horizontal jump with 57.1 and 52.4%, respectively.

After eating a small meal, they performed hand x-ray, anthropometry and dynamometry
This measurement can be done with digital palpation or with pressure manometry or dynamometry
KEY WORDS: Anthropometry; Dynamometry
; Harpendence Caliper; Handgrip Strength; Percentage of Body Fat; Percentage of Lean Body Mass
Thus, we conclude that researchers in the area of physical exercise and health and the Brazilian Army can benefit from the results of this study not only to estimate strength from simple morphological characteristics, but also to include anthropometric measures and body composition in prediction models of muscular strength that consider other parameters of dynamometry
or to establish values of relative strength.
