The isokinetic concept of exercise has become an increasingly popular means to assess musculoskeletal function. The isokinetic apparatus enables the control of angular velocity of the moving limb (which is held constant during the range of movement) whilst giving an accommodated resistance. The resistance produced by the device is accommodated to the net external moment exerted by the subject. Some of the advantages of isokinetic assessment are discussed. However, a number of restrictions and limitations should be considered when interpreting these strength measurements.
