Isokinetic testing and strength training utilizes advanced exercise and testing equipment with software to provide objective data important to patient rehabilitation. The equipment allows the therapist to exercise or test any major joint of the extremities. Valuable information is gained including limb speed, work, power, and acceleration. This can be compared to the unaffected extremity to help develop the most effective rehabilitation program.
