Listers,

I'm not sure exactly how to approach this but I would like input from
the members of this list.

A company selling surgical tubing type exercise equipment calls it's
products 'isokinetic'. It would be my understanding that this type of
equipment would be isotonic in nature and not isokinetic.

If I understand this correctly, does anyone have info to support that
stance. If I'm understanding this incorrectly, I would appreciate be
shown how this equipment is isokinetic.

Thanks, in advance for your assistance.
