Pua, Y., Bryant, A., Steele, J. R., Newton, R. & Wrigley, T. V. 2008, 'Isokinetic dynamometry in anterior cruciate ligament injury and reconstruction', Annals of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore, vol. 37, no. 4, pp. 330-340.


The use of Isokinetic dynamometry has often been criticised based on the face-validity argument that isokinetic movements poorly resemble the everyday multi-segmented, dynamic activities of human movements. In the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction or defiency population where muscle deficits are ubiquitous, this review paper has made a case for using isokinetic dynamometry to isolate and quantify these deficits in a safe and controlled manner.
