Isokinetic Exercise Machines
Isokinetic exercise machines maintain a constant speed through the range of motion. Rather than trying to lift a certain amount, the intent with these machines is to assess how much force can be applied at different speeds.
The device shown here is used for clinical or research purposes but other isokinetic devices
have been used specifically for simulating
activities of certain sports (eg. isokinetic swim bench)
Isokinetic exercises refer to movements that take place at a controlled rate of speed. Rather than seeing how much weight or resistance can be moved, the goal in isokinetic exercises is to see how much force can be applied at different movement speeds.
