Isokinetic Strength Training Equipment

What is Isokinetic Strength Training?
"Isokinetic" evaluated as the safest and
most effective strength training method in the world

Isokinetic Strength Training was firstly introduced by Hislop, Perrine and Thistle in the 1960's. Since then, this training method has been applied increasingly in rehabilitation and sports science.
With the special device, the speed of the equipment remains constant, and the resistance alters based on the exertion of the users. No matter how large or small exertion you carry out, the speed of the movement remains constant. Thus, the muscle contraction can achieve its maximum strength effect for every angle of the joints during the muscle strength training.
Isokinetic Strength Training can increase muscle strength, improve explosive power and enhance muscular endurance. It is recognized as the safest and most effective strength training in today's rehabilitation and sports science.
The traditional training equipment is costly and difficult to operate. The professionals are required to assist with the proper operation. Thus, such equipment can be found only in medical centers and training research units, where the researchers apply the equipment and mainly focus on the study of motor system damage and the rehabilitation patient assessment. Nevertheless, common people are not allowed to enjoy the safe and effective training.
Isokinetic strength training equipment
advantages that other traditional strength
training equipment does not have

Muscle force to be effectively applied

Isokinetic contraction provides dynamic change of resistance for the maximum muscle contraction; this allows muscles reach their maximum contraction in its exercise range.
Decrease for overloading damage

Isokinetic strength training equipment produces resistance according to the output force of users, and this reduces the risk of overloading damage.
Resistance of equipment adjusts automatically according to user's body condition

When user feels painful or tired, the exertion from user reduces as well; the equipment shall detect the force change right away. When the user stops exerting force, the equipment stops as well to prevent from injuries.
Various speed options

Provides various speed options for clinician, trainer or user to set the speed (high or low) according to their needs.
Reduce the pressure on the joint while exercising

Reduces pressure on joint during the exercise and improves the effect & safety level of muscle strength training.
Newton's First Law

An object will remain at rest unless an outside force acts on it, or in other cases, while in the steady motion status of isotonic training, the unchanged resistance increases the inertial force of the limbs. As for the isokinetic strength training, the speed is controlled by the equipment; and the resistance comes from the user, thus, inertia force does not occur.
