Certified Specialist in Isokinetic Dynamometry

A program entitled “Specialist in Isokinetic Dynamometry and Exercise” is going to be delivered along the Long Life Learning Infrastructure of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

The purpose of the program is to provide specialization in the use of isokinetic dynamometers for the assessment and improvement of muscle function.Particularly, at the end of the program the participants are expected to:

  • To understand the basic characteristics of human muscle force generation.
  • To understand the basic principles of isokinetic dynamometry.
  • To understand the basic errors and limitations of isokinetics.
  • To design a basic protocol of isokinetic assessment of muscle strength
  • To interpret the results of an isokinetic muscle strength assessment.
  • To design a protocol for isokinetic muscle strengthening and endurance.
  • To introduce isokinetic exercise in injury prevention or rehabilitation programs

The program has a total duration of 35 teaching hours. It is divided into a section of theoretical lectures delivered by distance and a 10-hour section of hands-on practice in the laboratory.

Venue: Laboratory of Neuromechanics, Serres, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
