  • Upgrading the Cybex II isokinetic system?

    Hello All:

    I have just moved into a new lab which includes an older model Cybex II
    Isokinetic system, complete with a not quite state of the art strip chart
    recorder. My first instinct was to call campus surplus, but it seems that
    these older systems were very well made and are still in use in many labs.
    Isokinetic testing is not a focus of my research but I would consider
    upgrading this system if I could do so at a reasonable cost and if the
    upgrade made it easy for my students to use.

    Therefore, my questions are directed to those of you have upgraded these
    older systems:
    What methods (hardware and software) have you used to update and improve
    data collection?
    Are you happy with the performance of your system?
    Would you do it a different way if you had it to do over?

    At least two options include the Biopack interface and the HUMAC system
    (specifically designed for Cybex II). Are there other/better choices?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jim Martin
