Cybex Isokinetic Test and Exercise System
The Cybex isokinetic test and exercise system is a medical technology used in our rehabilitation center. It provides a comprehensive solution to muscle weakness that develops from injuries. The system helps detect and treat muscle imbalances, prevents joint stiffness after surgery, and evaluates athletic performance.
Exercise Modes of the Cybex Isokinetic System
The Cybex isokinetic system has five exercise modes: Passive Mode (CPM), Isometric Mode, Isokinetic Mode, Isotonic Mode, and Robotic Mode.
The Passive Mode (CPM) is used for continuous passive motion exercises that reduce joint stiffness and increase range of motion.
The Isometric Mode is used for static contractions, where muscle fibers contract, but there is no change in muscle length.
The Isokinetic Mode is used to train the muscles at a constant speed, and it is ideal for muscle testing and rehabilitation.
The Isotonic Mode is used for training the muscles in which the resistance changes with the joint angle, and it helps develop strength and endurance.
The Robotic Mode is used for the rehabilitation of our patients with neurological disorders, and it helps restore function to the impaired limb.
Tests Used in the Cybex Isokinetic System
The Cybex isokinetic system also includes two tests: the Isokinetic Test and the Isometric Test.
The Isokinetic Test is used to measure muscle strength, power, and endurance. It evaluates the performance of our patient and helps in determining the return to active phase.
The Isometric Test, on the other hand, is used to determine the areas that cause pain and weakness and to determine their strength. It is also used to evaluate muscle strength in our patients with muscle disorders.
Cybex isokinetic test and exercise system is one of the valuable robotic tools used in our stroke rehabilitation center. Its exercise modes and tests provide a comprehensive solution for muscle weakness, imbalances, and stiffness of our patients.
