"Isokinetic tests permit testing of maximum effort, which provides a safety margin.
There was no difference in cycle ergometer or isokinetic dynamometer performance.
Isometric and isokinetic strength was evaluated in the knee extensors of the right lower extremity, primarily the quadriceps.
Lifting tasks are not typically performed at a controlled velocity (isokinetic and isometric) but are isoinertial in nature.
The muscle strength at angular velocities of 60[degrees]/sec and 180[degrees]/sec and average proprioceptive errors at 15-45[degrees] and 30-60[degrees] were assessed using the Biodex System 3 Pro Multi-Joint System (Biodex Medical Systems; Shirley, NY, USA) isokinetic dynamometer.
Tenders are invited for Acquisition of isokinetic equipment for functional assessment, prevention, rehabilitation and treatment in healthy and pathologies people, bound at the Laboratory Assessment Physical activity located in the Faculty of Education Campus of Puerto
It will also have high-performance laboratories like- biochemical laboratory with 3D motion analysis and isokinetic, swimming pool for underwater training, dry & wet laboratory for training, and rehabilitation.
Muscle strength evaluation of the shoulder internal rotator (IR) and external rotator (ER) is often used by clinicians to assess muscle performance and to guide rehabilitation in the return-to-sports phase.1 Isokinetic dynamometry (ID) assesses maximal muscle concentric, eccentric and isometric strength under constant velocities throughout the whole range of motion (ROM) of different joints2,3 providing mechanically valid and reliable measures of torque, position and velocity for both clinical and research purposes.4 Currently ID is considered the gold standard method for strength assessment5 mainly because the results are not influenced by strength imbalance between the participant and the assessor.
Furthermore, many studies that have analysed the effect of movement tempo on the level of generated strength and power have used isokinetic equipment (Farthing and Chilibeck, 2003; Lacerte et al., 1992; Shepstone et al., 2005).
In the present study, we aimed to investigate the correlation between the Q angle and the isokinetic knee strength and muscle activity.
Endpoints measured include the change from baseline versus 14 days of treatment in sum of peak torque during isokinetic knee extensions.
