Do you know your strength? Have you ever measured your strength accurately? Are you recovering from an injury OR have muscle imbalances?
If you’ve said yes to any of the above, then we can help you.
The renovation of our Killarney practice inside the gym is now complete, and we have added some new testing equipment. Our latest addition is the Cybex, an Isokinetic machine that can measure your strength.
Isokinetic testing is the most accurate way to measure muscle strength for your joints. It is commonly used to assess and improve muscle strength, endurance, and power. It provides an idea of where your weaknesses or muscle imbalances are (comparing left to right) and aids in accurately designing your personalised rehabilitation program.
So why use the Cybex? Is there not another way to measure my strength?
Yes, you can do a 1 Rep Max (1RM) or a variation in which you have to lift/push the heaviest weight that you can, through a full range of motion. However, this can be a safety issue.
With the Cybex, we can test you at a constant, controlled speed, allowing you to produce the same amount of force as a 1RM, which we can then measure and record electronically, in a safe and controlled environment. Isokinetic testing is for all ages, injured and non-injured.
While you’re there, on our other equipment, we can test your balance and reaction time too.
