Isokinetics book cover


Muscle Testing, Interpretation and Clinical Applications

Practical and easy-to-use, this text covers the theoretical background of clinical isokinetics and its practical applications in the field of muscle performance and rehabilitation. It examines the methodology and its use in relation to muscle conditioning and rehabilitation. The content also offers detailed coverage of isokinetic dynamometry (measuring muscle strength and function) in relation to the muscle systems of the major joints.
