    Isokinetic Dynamometry for assessment of muscle strength and joint function
    A BASES/Human Kinetics Webinar
    Presenter Bill Baltzopoulos



    1. Tue, Feb 23, 2016 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM GMT


    Show in My Time Zone




    The assessment of muscle strength by measuring the joint moment using isokinetic dynamometry is affected by a number of mechanical and neuromuscular factors. Understanding the effects of these factors on reliability and validity of dynamometry parameters is essential for the correct interpretation of muscle strength and joint function measurements and their relationship to performance.

    By the end of this webinar, attendees should be able to be able to apply the most appropriate techniques for the measurement of muscle strength and joint function (as suggested by the BASES Biomechanics guidelines). More specifically, to:
    to identify the mechanical parameters used to describe human strength and their measurement in different populations using various types of equipment
    to describe the differences between dynamometer moment, joint moment and muscle moment
    to describe the parameters that affect the reliability and validity of strength parameters
    to describe the factors that allow correct interpretation of the relationship between dynamic strength and performance parameters
    to enable the participants to apply appropriate correction methods for the accurate assessment of muscle strength
    to enable the participants to build a complete profile of dynamic strength for a muscle group or joint
