Biodex System 3 enables us to offer versatile and reliable testing and rehabilitation of the human musculoskeletal system.
Testing skeletal muscle function is an important component of any screening assessment or return to function assessment post injury.
This system is commonly used within the professional sporting world to aid rehabilitation and assist speedy recovery.
The theory behind isokinetic testing is muscle movement isolation. By isolating the muscle groups and testing how much they can handle, we can identify where you are weakest and what movements might be contributing to your pain.
The Systems applications are supported by evidence-based clinical protocols for injuries such as shoulder dysfunction, knee osteoarthritis, lateral ankle sprains, patellofemoral dysfunction and ACL injury/reconstructions. The Biodex System 3 can also be programmed to work passively through a range to increase flexibility and aid joint ROM for patients who may have a restricted/limited range following a planned surgical joint replacement or post fracture.
The wide variety of out-put reports also allows numeric and graphic information to be printed.
The dynamometer will provide objective, consistent and accurate data safely to ensure the greatest outcome for our client and their individual needs throughout a rehabilitation programme.
Future tests to re-evaluate strength can be directly compared to previous results.
