One component of patient evaluation is muscle performance assessment. The purpose of this study was: 1) to determine the difference and correlation between hand-held, isometric, and isokinetic dynamometry test results in patients with knee dysfunction and 2) to determine the effect of pain during such testing. Bilateral quadriceps strength in 23 subjects with unilateral knee dysfunction was tested using concentric and eccentric isokinetic dynamometry at 60 degrees/sec, isometric dynamometry… CONTINUE READING
