Study Design Clinical measurement, cross-sectional. Background Quadriceps deficits are common in individuals with knee joint impairments and impact functional and quality-of-life outcomes. Quadriceps strength symmetry influences clinical decisions after knee injury. Isometric electromechanical dynamometry (ISO-ED) is the gold standard for measuring symmetry, but is not available in all clinical settings. Objectives To compare concurrent validity of handheld dynamometry and 1-repetition-maximum… CONTINUE READING
