preferred walking speed, and completed strength testing habituation. The second visit included overground gait analysis, knee extensor torque and power testing, and a 30-minute treadmill walk, followed by a second instance of overground gait analysis and knee extensor strength and power testing

the strain gauges and force plates were highly correlated. In continuation with the research attempts that simplify muscular strength tests and in view of the other above-mentioned limitations, we designed a new isometric test—the isometric horizontal push test (IHPT)—that quantifies PF outputs using

, the skin preparation was performed, and the electromagnetic sensors and the EMG electrodes were attached to the designated areas. The investigator then measured muscle strength of the UT, LT, and SA. The EMG activities during the muscle strength testing were collected and used as the EMG normalization

Subjects participated in 1 familiarization session, 1 test session (maximum strength test and anthropometric test), 1 control session, and 3 experimental

. Additionally, participants were also tested for a 2RM to 8RM on all other programmed lifts. 1RM was estimated from these results using the following formula 16 : 1 RM = Load / ( 1.0278 − 0.0278 × repetitions performed ) Testing for 1RM was repeated during the week between conditions. All strength testing was

Consequently, our results suggested that, for healthy young women, upper leg 50% girth measurement rather than handgrip strength test was a useful method for evaluating both knee extensor muscle strength and size. In the present study, a stepwise multiple regression analysis was applied to the predictor
