Terme Polyclinic is a BIODEX isokinetic reference center for Croatia
We use the isokinetic system for diagnostics - isokinetic testing, physical therapy and rehabilitation, injury prevention.
Isokinetic diagnosis is the initial and final part of each individual therapy plan. It is a method of objectively examining the function of muscles, joints and spine, which takes into account age, gender, body weight and height. The data are processed by computer and give a detailed insight into the type and severity of muscle, spine and joint dysfunction.
BIODEX isokinetic testing system
- BIODEX Isokinetic dynamometer
- BIODEX Balance Platform
- BIODEX Gait Trainer
We use the BIODEX system in testing to measure power; functioning, activation rate and endurance of all muscles in the body.
BIODEX isokinetic system in prevention, physical therapy and rehabilitation
Targeted and safe rehabilitation today is unthinkable without isokinetic diagnostics and exercises performed under the supervision of a kinesiologist. It provides measurable results to the physician, kinesiologist, therapist, and patient.
The application of isokinetics in rehabilitation improves intermuscular coordination, neuromuscular activation, joint stability by specific and targeted muscle strengthening (muscle groups of agonists / antagonists) which prevents the possibility of re-injury, stabilizes and optimizes muscle function, reduces muscle imbalance and atrophy.
Isokinetic training is among the most widespread methods of strengthening muscles and improving the range of motion of the joints. The isokinetic dynamometer enables precise and safe training during the rehabilitation process. There are almost no age restrictions (age from 8 to 95 years).
