Hamstrings

 

System 4 Advantage Software Now Supports Hamstring Protocols
Hamstring injury is serious business. Regardless of whether you have an existing process
for protecting and strengthening hamstrings, the objective test protocols offered with the
Biodex System 4 will provide valuable, isolated muscle-performance data. Test results, combined with established targeted outcomes, can be used for pre-emptive injury screening, managing rehabilitation and determining readiness for return-to-play.

Upgrade path available for existing System 4 and System 3 dynamometers.


Protocol #1:

Multiple Angle Comparison Test

Examines isometric bilateral flexion peak
torque symmetry where the limb position
puts the hamstring in a lengthened
(stretched) state. Passive stretch is the
inherent force (or torque) produced by
the hamstring in the lengthened state.
When deficits are within 10%,
predisposition to reinjury is significantly
reduced.
NOTE: This Protocol requires 830-550 Hamstring Attachment. Use of any attachment other than the 830-550, is outside proper and intended use.
