Dynamometry is widely used to measure subject strength. The method employed to correct dynamometry scores for gravitational influences can result in differing correction estimates. This study investigates differences between mathematical estimates of correction values and directly measured passive forces. Using the Kin-Com dynamometer, passive force measurements from 90 degrees of knee flexion to full extension were collected for nine asymptomatic subjects. These measurements were then compared… CONTINUE READING
