There’s a reason for the recent resurgence of isokinetic strength testing after ACL reconstruction. Limb strength symmetry and balanced hamstring to quadriceps ratios are major components of return-to-play criteria shown to reduce reinjury in athletes after ACL-R.

NEW Clearly Communicate Test Results
Grounded in the latest research and supported by a panel of field experts, Biodex introduces the first-ever Return-to-Play report. Results can be understood at a glance with clear pass/fail for isokinetic tests throughout the athlete’s recovery. This unique report gives patients and referring physicians the added confidence they are ready to return to play.
