The effects of an 8-week unilateral contract-relax (CR) stretching training program (passive stretch after isometric contraction) on muscular performance were investigated in a group of 16 athletes. The flexibility, maximum torque and angular position as well as contraction work in movements of the knee joint were determined before training and after 4 and(More)
JET - the Joint European Torus - is a major experiment aimed at establishing the feasibility of using nuclear fusion as a source of energy in the 21st Century. In a fusion reactor a plasma current of several million amperes is induced by transformer action and a complex system of magnetic fields is used to confine the plasma away from the walls of the(More)
Physical and technical limitations have to be considered when measuring small torques over a wide range of angles during joint movements in humans using isokinetic methods, i.e. at constant angular velocities. In the concentric mode, during the initial phase, the subject must actively accelerate the lever of the isokinetic dynamometer to a preset velocity.(More)
