A multi-joint system for the assessment of ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, and wrist joints and a linear leg press for the unilateral, bilateral, and alternating assessment.
The CON-TREX MJ can assess isometric, concentric, and eccentric muscles actions across a range of speeds from 0 to 300°.s-1.
The CON-TREX LP can assess the same muscle actions at speeds of 0 to 1m.s-1.
These dynamometers support undergraduate and postgraduate research as well as physical screening processes for professional athletes.
Our two isokinetic dynanometers (leg press ad multi-joint; MJ& LP MK2, Con-Trex) allow for precise quantitative measurement of muscle strength. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS; model 2002, The Magstim Company Ltd.), transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS; HDC Kit, The Magstim Company Ltd.), and percutaneous nerve stimulation (Constant Current Stimulator DS7A, Digitimer Ltd.) are non-invasive method of brain and nerve stimulations for thorough investigations of neuromuscular pathways and brain activities.
These measures can be combined with EMG recordings (15T/25T Powerlab data acquisition units -ADInstruments, BTS EMG – Bioengineering Corp.) to get a further insight into muscular activation level and recruitment orders.
