Based on the limited ability of the human being to voluntarily control submaximal eccentric exertions, previous studies have indicated that isokinetic testing with a combined concentric-eccentric exercise protocol could effectively identify submaximal (feigned) effort in various muscle groups by showing an abnormally high eccentric to concentric ratio (ECR). The objective of this study was to determine the validity and accuracy of an ECR-based isokinetic test in identifying feigned ankle… CONTINUE READING
