Isokinetic system

 | Post date: 2017/05/22 | 

Isokinetic equipments are instruments that allow to perform muscular exercises at a constant angular speed along the entire joint range of motion. After an acceleration phase, once reached a predefined angular velocity, the joint meets a resistance that remains constant along the whole range of motion (ROM). This because the system provides a variable mechanical resistance torque against the motion. This variability is primarily due to the nature of joint torque which is dependent on ROM.

In rehabilitation, it can be used in all the re-educational treatments where a muscular functionality recovery is needed.

The Isokinetic Exercise is in fact finely adaptable and can therefore be used with extremely weak or very strong patients.

Biodex Isokinetic System 3 pro is the isokinetic multi joint rehabilitation system. System 3 pro features five different operating modes including passive, isokinetic, isometric, isotonic and eccentric. Attachments to test all lower extremity and upper extremity joints are available in system 3 pro including ankle, knee, hip, wrist, elbow and shoulder. A separate Attachment for testing the trunk and for closed kinetic chain testing are available in system 3 pro. Lift simulation and work simulation attachments enhance the capabilities of system 3 pro to include functional rehabilitation protocols as well. Biodex advantage software which runs on a state of the art Pentium PC provides visual biofeedback as well as facilities for curve analysis.
