Procedure for Investigating the Patellar Reflex under Isometric Conditions

Abstract

A procedure for investigating the patellar reflex is described for isometric conditions when the position of the shin relative to the thigh is rigidly fixed by a special device. The sensors of the device record the development of the moment of force in each knee joint separately. The results obtained with an electromyogram and a mechanogram are compared.
