Force, velocity and power values obtained from draw wire encoders and accelerometers during isoinertial
strength testing have been showed to present a high inter-trials and inter-sessions repeatability (9, 11).

, isometric, and isokinetic dynamometry.
The Progressive Isoinertial
Lifiting Evaluation (20) is a test of one's ability to lift a weighted box from the floor to waist level, and then from waist level to shoulder level in sets of 4 repetitions at a 12 lifts per minute pace.
IMUs, typically used for estimating body segment orientation , have been specifically employed for the assessment of ROM during joint mobility tests (IMU fixed on the body segment) [17-19] and muscle strength during isoinertial
strength tests (IMU fixed on the external resistance) [17,20] by estimating the body segment's orientation and force impressed to the external resistance, respectively.
With this in mind the present section has divided training with isokinetic, isoinertial
and isometric contractions.
Some tests such as progressive isoinertial
lifting test, which evaluate the functional level for patients with low back pain require suitable space, time and equipment.
Protocols for the Assessment of Isoinertial
It was based on practical concerns, like avoiding velocities close to those used in isoinertial
or free-weight conditions, and their influence on muscle activation according to previous evidences (4,13,21).

loading: EMG spectiral indices, Borg scale, and endurance time.
Measurements of human isometric, isokinetic, and isoinertial
strengths have already been developed previously.
