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 [16], 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.
