The authors define five different measurements of power of muscular performance. Using an isokinetic dynamometer, the velocity of motion is constant and thus can be controlled. Power, therefore, can be readily assessed. The speed of muscular contraction is of physiological and functional interest. The time it takes for muscles to develop force, the rate at which muscles can contract and sustain a force throughout the range of motion, and the relationship of speed to force are all facets of… CONTINUE READING
