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.

This study aims to examine the benefits to thinking processes of a low intensity, strengthening exercise program for older adults.
Patients with an aortic stent graft are recommended to do muscle strengthening exercise as part of their rehabilitation. But, as excess blood pressure pose a risk to the integrity of the s...
AIM: Strengthening and sensorimotor training (e.g with the aim to improve balance) are widely used in rehabilitation. There is little knowledge about the best ways to combine streng...
Studies have shown that isometric strengthening helps people with osteoarthritis of the knee. Isometric strengthening is muscle-strengthening exercise without movement, in which a person a...
This study will compare the effects of 2 exercise programs including core stabilization exercise and general trunk strengthening exercise programs on trunk muscle activity, physical dysfun...
Greater neck girth and strength may be associated with a lower risk of sport-related concussion due to mitigation of head accelerations by the neck. However, neck strengthening exercise remains unstud...
To study effects of strengthening exercise with strong tendon on the lumbosacral multifidus muscle.
A hybrid training system (HTS) is a resistance exercise method that combines voluntary concentric muscle contractions and electrically stimulated eccentric muscle contractions. We devised an exercise ...
Recent evidence suggests that resistance training with light or heavy loads to failure results in similar adaptations. Herein, we compared how both training modalities affect the molecular, neuromuscu...
Chronic systemic low grade inflammation is associated with the age-related loss of muscle mass. Resistance exercise has been suggested to reduce or lower chronic systemic low grade inflammation. Howev...
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.

A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
