Knee joint strength ratios and effects of hip position in rugby players

Deighan, Martine A.; Serpell, Benjamin; Bitcon, Mark J.; Croix, Mark De Ste


2-Measures of knee joint function, although useful in predicting injury, can be misleading because hip position in traditional seated isokinetic tests is dissimilar to when injuries occur. This study aimed to determine the differences between seated and supine peak torques and strength ratios and examine the interaction of position with joint velocity. This was a cross-sectional, repeated measures study. Isokinetic knee extensor and flexor concentric and eccentric peak torque was measured...[Show more]
