Isokinetic strength measurements of the quadriceps and hamstring that are commonly conducted using a 90 degrees range of motion (RoM) may involve some risk to specific knee patient groups. Testing these muscles at a much shorter RoM may reduce the risk but in order to render this method clinically acceptable the reproducibility of the derived test findings has to be established. Therefore the main objective of this study was to assess the reproducibility of isokinetic peak torque and normalized… CONTINUE READING
