A triaxial force measurement system has been developed to allow the measurement of whole-body manual force exertions in the three axes of the Cartesian system. The design of the system precludes the exertion of torques, thus enabling a description of the linear forces that an individual can exert in three dimensions. Forces are measured independently for(More)
A device is described for measuring strength and power outputs of dynamic vertical lifts between heights of 0.4 and 2.2 m. The device is safe, robust, and easily transportable. It consists of a water-filled tube 2 m high and 200 mm internal diameter. The subject pulls vertically on a handle which is connected with flexible wire rope via a series of pulleys(More)
Dynamic lifting strength was assessed at lift velocities ranging from 0 to 1 m·s −1 using a hydrodynamometer in which the viscous resistance to motion could be preset. Nine men and nine women performed one- and two-handed dynamic exertions against low, medium, and high resistances. The subjects were required to lift as forcefully and as fast as possible(More)
This study presents a protocol for assessment of manual strength over all directions in three dimensions. The reliability and validity of the protocol was tested on four male subjects. They performed one-handed maximal exertions overthe entire sphere of exertion at hand heights of 1.0 and 1.75 m and at a horizontal foot distance of 0.5 m from the centre of(More)
