I was wondering if anyone knew of the latest technologies/equipment that
measures lower leg strength. We currently use a CYBEX ORTHOTRON II
machine to measure ankle (dorsiflexion/plantarflexion), knee
(flexion/extension), and hip (flexion/extension) strength through the
isokinetic measurements. We are looking to upgrade and are very limited
by space. Does anyone have any suggestions or references? Thanks.
