Hand-Held Dynamometry

Precision dosing of medical exercise therapy requires an accurate and consistent performance measurement throughout the course of treatment.  This is why we developed standard guidelines for the application of Hand-Held Dynamometry in daily clinical practice.

Clinical Fatigue Test

The assessment of clinical manifestation of muscle fatigue is an effective procedure in establishing therapeutic exercise dose. Few studies have evaluated physical therapist reliability in establishing muscle fatigue through detection of changes in quality of movement patterns in a live setting.

Dosing Guidelines

Our objective-based standardized guidelines for proper exercise dosing based on clinical fatigue.

Prescription Format

Used to help determine the precise dose of a therapeutic exercise. The result of an isometric dynamometry test determines the initial test dose for a clinical fatigue test. The result of the clinical fatigue test will then determine the therapeutic exercise dose. Each dynamometric test is performed in the posture and position of the selected exercise.
