Isokinetic Testing

Strength and muscular endurance can be measured extremely accurately through the use of an isokinetic machine (Cybex), this data can then be used to help us to plan a patient's rehabilitation intensity, duration, and mode.

These devices are particularly effective at measuring the strength of the muscles surrounding the joints (shoulder, knee and ankle) following an injury.

The test is always performed by comparing the results from both limbs, as this allows us to quantify the deficit as a percentage of original strength, giving us a baseline and goal towards what we are working.

Control tests are scheduled to measure the progress towards 100% recovery, which is considered a prerequisite to returning to sport. Ensuring muscles have had their original strength, tone, and endurance restored is also a crucial component of re-injury prevention.
