2009) Comparison of isokinetic exercise versus standard exercise training in patients with chronic low back pain: a randomized controlled study.
The concept of multiple-joint isokinetic exercise dates back to the 1970s (Pipes and Wilmore, 1975) although relatively few studies have examined its utility.
2011) Effect of 15 days of betaine ingestion on concentric and eccentric force outputs during isokinetic exercise.
When performing 60[degrees]/s isokinetic exercises in this study, no differences were associated with motor unit potential and the CNTF genotype.
It was hypothesized that cycling, stretching or electromyostimulation inserted between sets during an isokinetic exercise would delay fatigue compared with passive recovery.
The objectives of this study were to propose a model for exercise-induced muscle injury by way of a maximal eccentric isokinetic exercise at low angular speed, and assess the time course of functional recovery of the injured quadriceps femoris muscle from the maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) torque and electrical activity (root mean square--RMS and median frequency--MDF).
