Isokinetic Testing

Isokinetic testing is the gold standard for muscle strength testing. This is a computerized measurement of muscle function and output and is the treatment of choice of top athletes and sports teams internationally.

The Shannonside Clinic has led the field in the use of isokinetic strength testing for the last 10 years We have specialised in the testing of limb (arm and leg) muscle dysfunction and strength loss. Recently we have added a specialized lumbar spine unit to our Biodex System 3 isokinetic dynamometer for assessment of the back muscles.

We are one of only 2 clinics in the country providing this internationally recognized gold standard of assessment of lumbar spine muscle function. See Biodex Back Assessment for further information.
