The purpose of this study was to investigate the movement speed characteristics of 2 intrinsically different limbs. Twenty subjects volunteered to participate (10 men and 10 women). Each subject performed 5 repetitions of concentric knee and elbow extension and flexion movements at 60 through 500 d.s(-1) on an isokinetic dynamometer. Kinematic data were(More)
Isokinetic dynamometers have been measured for torque and force reliability in the past, but little research has been performed on rate of velocity development (RVD) measures. The purpose of this study was to determine the reliability of RVD measures on an isokinetic device at slow and fast speeds. Twenty volunteers performed 5 repetitions of concentric(More)
Prior studies have indicated that anaerobic power tests correlate highly with firefighting performance tasks. This investigation measured peak power and mean power of 10 incumbent female firefighters (age, 29.8 +/- 2.1 years; height, 169.7 +/- 7.9 cm; weight, 66.8 +/- 9.9 kg) who underwent a 30-second Wingate anaerobic power test. Peak power and mean power(More)
