View Full Version : Isokinetic Tubing?

Steve,
I would suggest that the tubing is variable resistance rather than
isokinetic. The surgical tubing 'probably' has a somewhat linear
stress-strain curve, that is, the force applied is linearly proportional
to the amount of stretch. But this by no means would limit, or lock in,
the speed of stretch (i.e., isokinetic).
False advertising or ignorance?
