Biodex Isokinetic Testing & Training Vargo Physical Therapy

Isokinetic testing and strength training utilizes advanced exercise and testing equipment with software to provide objective data important to patient rehabilitation. The equipment allows your therapist to exercise or test any major joint within the extremities. Valuable information is gained including limb speed, work, power and acceleration. This information can be compared to the unaffected extremity to help develop the most effective rehabilitation program. In isokinetic exercise, there is a constant speed of movement through the range of motion, with a set amount of resistance which will assist in increasing muscular strength and endurance of the affected extremity.
