The isokinetic method is characterized by a movement at a predetermined constant speed, regardless of the strength applied by the subject: this allows to carry out the rehab process in full safety condition.
With Kineo the functionality of the isokinetic method has been implemented introducing:
- Isokinetic exercises in open and closed kinetic chain
- differentiated load between concentric and eccentric phases.
A STEP FORWARD IN THE ISOKINETIC METHOD
Isokinetic assessment at different speeds
The test (mono or bilateral) involves up to 5 successive movements with different speed and maximum force engagement.
The analysis of the graph allows to evaluate the relationship between force, speed and angle.
Many work stations in one machine
No more difficulties in working with different muscle groups.
Kineo allows to perform isokinetic exercises with all the working stations, both in open chain (ex: Leg Extension) and in closed chain (es. Squat)
Differentiated Concentric / Eccentric Load
With Kineo Biphasic Load it is possible to differentiate the load between the concentric and eccentric phase to reduce the muscular effort and and make the work safer.
