The Impact of Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow on Shoulder External Rotators and Abductors’ Peak Torque

Bassam A. Nabil, Mariam A. Ameer, Azza M. Abdelmohsen, Abeer F. Hanafy, Ahmed S. Yamani, Naglaa M. Elhafez, and Salam M. Elhafez

posterior rotator cuff muscles and scapular strengthening. 10 – 13 Isokinetic testing is an important part of the assessment of upper limb muscular strength. Researchers have demonstrated its effect in training and provided clinically relevant information regarding muscular performance through the

Effect of Sex and Level of Activity on Lower-Extremity Strength, Functional Performance, and Limb Symmetry

Caroline Lisee, Lindsay Slater, Jay Hertel, and Joe M. Hart

population-specific normative values of these tasks to help further improve the return-to-play decision process. Strength of the quadriceps and hamstring muscle groups are consistently tested through isokinetic and isometric tasks at varying speeds and joint positions. 4 , 12 , 13 Functional performance is

Shoulder Range of Motion, Rotator Strength, and Upper-Extremity Functional Performance in Junior Tennis Players

Nazli-Busra Cigercioglu, Hande Guney-Deniz, Ezgi Unuvar, Filiz Colakoglu, and Gul Baltaci

, 10 , 11 These differences in rotator strength and ROM have been previously reported as the indicators of tennis performance in junior players. 10 , 11 The isokinetic strength test is the primary criterion of strength assessment, but its application in the field is limited. Therefore, several field

Quadriceps and Patient-Reported Function in ACL-Reconstructed Patients: A Principal Component Analysis

Grant E. Norte, Jay N. Hertel, Susan A. Saliba, David R. Diduch, and Joseph M. Hart

-R may contribute to inconsistent reporting of standardized tests or test batteries. 1 , 3 Assessment of physical function and health status for individuals with ACL-R is complex and warrants the use of diverse evaluation strategies. Multimodal assessments of peripheral muscle function (eg, isokinetic

Comparison of Trunk Flexion Proprioception Between Healthy Athletes and Athletes With Patellofemoral Pain

Reza Heydari Armaki, Keramatollah Abbasnia, and Alireza Motealleh

validated Persian version of knee Functional Index Questionnaire. 20 – 22 A 10-cm visual analog scale was used to measure knee pain. The visual analog scale is a valid and reliable tool to determine the level of pain in PFP. 23 A Biodex isokinetic dynamometer (Biodex system 4 Pro ™ ; Biodex Medical

Hip Abductor and External Rotator Strengths Correlate With Hop Symmetry in Men Athletes 2 Years After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

Zakariya H. Nawasreh, Mohammad A. Yabroudi, Mohamed N. Kassas, Sharf M. Daradkeh, and Khaldoon M. Bashaireh

determining the muscle strength performance as part of the return to sport criteria following ACLR. 26 , 27 The majority of the studies that investigated the muscle performance after ACLR were restricted to isometric or isokinetic strength of the quadriceps muscle. 24 , 27 The quadriceps strength deficit

Effects of Concentric and Eccentric Strength Training on Fatigue Induced by Concentric and Eccentric Exercises

Eduardo Lusa Cadore, Miriam González-Izal, Rafael Grazioli, Igor Setuain, Ronei Silveira Pinto, and Mikel Izquierdo

fatigue induced by concentric and eccentric exercises have been minimally investigated. Because sports injuries often occur at higher fatigue conditions 1 , 2 and isokinetic strength training is one of the most common interventions applied in sports environment to improve neuromuscular performance and

assessment and accurate measurement is not possible. Another frequently used evaluation method is with a hand-held dynamometer. However, some specialties of raters such as gender, body weight, and grip strength affect a rater’s reliability in obtaining torque measurements. 6 Isokinetic dynamometers are

Relationship Between Seated Single-Arm Shot Put and Isokinetic Shoulder Flexion and Elbow Extension Strength

Matthew D. Watson, George J. Davies, and Bryan L. Riemann

SSASP performance and isokinetic pushing forces at varying velocities 5 directly supports the idea that the SSASP reflects multijoint UE strength. Simultaneous shoulder flexion and elbow extension are utilized within both SSASP and isokinetic push testing techniques. No previous work appears to have
