OBJECTIVE The present study assessed the reliability and validity of isokinetic dynamometry in the qualitative determination of the evolution of total knee arthroplasty. CASES 20 patients whose mean age was 71.35 years, undergoing knee arthroplasty, and 25 controls whose mean age was 71.36 years. METHOD Computerized isokinetic assessment of flexor and extensor muscles using a CYBEX 6000 dynamometer. RESULTS The total flexor/extensor effort ratio for the treated side of patients vs the… CONTINUE READING
