The Effect of Isokinetic Strengthening Training

2016-10-20 03:23:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Our participants will include 40 patients within one month of stroke, 40 patients who received total hip replacement or total knee replacement two to four weeks before. The participants will be randomly assigned to the isokinetic training group or the isotonic training group. Outcome measures including isometric peak torque of hip/knee at 90 degree of flexion, peak torque of hip/knee at angular velocity of 60 degree/s and 120 degree/s, Short Form 36 (SF-36), the Timed Up and Go test, the Oxford Hip/knee Score, the plasma concentration of hsCRP, and the level of substance P in saliva will be collected at the beginning and 4 weeks after the training program. Statistical significant differences will be determined between the improvement of outcome measures of the isokinetic and the isotonic training groups.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.

WHO regional office for the Americas acting as a coordinating agency for the improvement of health conditions in the hemisphere. The four main functions are: control or eradication of communicable diseases, strengthening of national and local health services, education and training, and research.
