Since isokinetic equipment was first designed in the late 1960s, many investigations have focused on the agonist-antagonist relationships, left-right imbalances and so on, in order to present normative data for the assessment of musculoskeletal injuries. Furthermore, the isokinetic principle has been applied in rehabilitation to minimise rehabilitation time, because it is thought that it may give a close-to-optimal training stimulus to the musculoskeletal system. However, much research still needs to be carried out in this field, in order to determine which evaluation protocols are relevant, which training regimen is optimal, and which angular velocities should be used to assess and/or rehabilitate muscle strength.
