Isometric strength testing is highly reliable as confounding variables such as technique, experience, velocity and acceleration are more controlled or eliminated compared to isotonic or isokinetic strength testing. Because there is no weight to control, accelerations or impacts the risk of injury is also considerably lower.
Innervations specifically designed the portable isometric strength testing rig for our C-Force Performance Platform to be very light weight at <2kg and collapse down into a compact 45cm x 10cm x 10 cm package. We include a telescopic carbon fiber bar which is very strong but light and quickly and easily can be assembled or collapsed down for portability.
The height of the bar can be infinitely adjusted using the cargo straps so that a wide range of positions can be tested:
- mid-thigh pull
- back squat
- chest press
- shoulder press
- bent over row
- elbow flexor
