Isokinetic muscle strength measurement

In HyMy Village isokinetic measurements are conducted by our professionals. We have modern dynamometer to measure knee extension and flexion torque production with chosen movement speed and different types of muscle contractions.

Isokinetic muscle strength measurement

We measure muscle force output with an isokinetic Contrex force dynamometer. The measurement provides accurate information about the function of the muscles surrounding the joint, the ratio of force production and the balance between the limbs. The results can be used in monitoring the progress of rehabilitation of lower limb injuries and they help in planning an effective training program. The reports obtained from the measurement also provide support and certainty for decision-making when assessing the readiness to return to sport-specific training.

Isokinetic muscle strength measurement is suitable for athletes and fitness enthusiasts over the age of 16 who are interested in:

  • muscle power output
  • about post-surgery rehabilitation and recovery of power output
  • or has knee, ankle or shoulder problems

Knee measurements:

In the isokinetic strength test, we get accurate information about the power output of the knee extensor and flexor muscles. Especially in rehabilitation after anterior and posterior cruciate ligament injuries, isokinetic measurement is an invaluable tool. The measurement is also very useful in monitoring the rehabilitation of hamstring injuries. The reference values ​​enable the comparison of results for different sports and phases of rehabilitation.

Ankle measurements:

The ankle plays a significant role in supporting the body, maintaining balance and moving. Regarding ankle and Achilles injuries, we are able to measure the power output of the ankle extensor and flexor muscles and provide important information about the function of the joint.

Shoulder Measurements:

We also carry out strength measurements of the shoulder area, which consist of two parts: the Athletic Shoulder Test provides information on the isometric peak strength of the shoulder area, and the isokinetic measurement provides information on the force output of the internal and external rotators of the shoulder joint. By combining these two tests, we get a comprehensive picture of the muscle strength of the shoulder girdle.

Implementation of measurements

Muscle strength tests are carried out as expert work in connection with teaching. The selected tests are designed to provide comprehensive information on muscle function and power output, using different muscle work methods and speeds. You should reserve about 90 minutes for the measurement visit.

We also use the Seca mBCA 514 body composition analyzer, which provides detailed information on the body's muscle mass and its possible half differences. In addition, it is possible to combine drop jumps with walking, from which the athletes get information about the reactive strength index (RSI) of the lower limbs and fast power output.

When booking, please indicate which joint you are particularly interested in. This helps us prepare for your visit and tailor the test to suit you.

For the visit, please wear casual clothing in which you can move easily.
