Reports on the development of an electronic foot ergometer for directly measuring muscular work load while avoiding the common problems in the older pedal ergometers. Foot pedal on which the foot force is applied; Production of a rotating momentum, around the pedal axis, which is balanced by an opposite momentum; Use of lamp-photocell system with the photocell pulses fed to a programmable binary divider.

    The authors previously found that creatine (Cr) combined with 12 weeks of resistance training enhanced muscle strength and endurance and lean tissue mass (LTM) in older men. Their purpose in this study was to assess these variables with cessation of Cr combined with 12 weeks of reduced training...

    Background: Hand-held dynamometry is a portable and inexpensive method to quantify muscle strength. To determine if muscle strength has changed, an examiner must know what part of the difference between a patient's pre-treatment and post-treatment measurements is attributable to real change, and...

    Muscle strength imbalance can be an important factor in hamstrings muscle strain. A hamstrings/quadriceps (H/Q) strength ratio based on concentric peak torque values (Hcon:Qcon) has traditionally been used to describe the potential for knee-joint destabilization. Because certain standard actions...
