  • Quadriceps testing

    Dear List,

    I am doing research for a forthcoming Simon & Schuster book on
    osteoarthritis that Dr. Bob Arnot (NBC) is writing.
    I was wondering if I might get some assistance with quadriceps strength
    testing recommendations?

    -What is considered the gold standard quadriceps strength test? (isokinetic?)
    -Is there a more practical measure that one might use that doesnt require
    high tech equipment?
    -Also is there a simple (doesnt have to be real accurate) self assesment for
    quadriceps strength that a lay person might be able to do? (step down test,
    single legged hop test?)

    Any information on this topic would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance,
    Suzanne Bagin
