Isokinetic Method

The isokinetic method is characterized by a movement at constant speed, regardless of the strength applied by the subject: this allows to control the speed of the gesture independently of the applied force.

 

Old Isokinetic Training & rehab

 

The Kineo system allows you to work with the isokinetic method in open and closed kinetic chain exercise and with 4 workout stations: leg extension, leg curl, pulley and squat.
The main features of the isokinetic method in the Kineo system are:

– The movement takes place at a constant speed regardless of the applied force;

– The subject may use all his/her strength according to the joint angles;

– In the presence of pain, the voluntary stop of the movement sets the load to zero;

– There is no inertia in the isokinetic movement;

– The Biphasic Load allows you to independently configure the concentric and eccentric phases. (e.g.: we can have a concentric phase at a given speed and an isotonic eccentric phase whatever the load);

The Kineo Innovation in the Isokinetic Method

 

Kineo Isokinetic
 

Four Workout Stations in One

Everyone that works in the rehabilitation field knows well the difficulties in configuring the different workstations.
With Kineo is possible to perform many exercises with the isokinetic method on 3 different stations with no wasting of time and with the maximum simplicity.

Work in Open and Closed Chain

With the 2 Kineo stations of Leg Extension and Squat the subject can perform both exercises in Open Kinetic Chain ( Leg Ext ) and in Closed Kinetic Chain ( Squat ).
 

Biphasic Load

With the Biphasic Load it is possible to differentiate the load between the concentric and eccentric phase to reduce the muscular effort and to enhance job security .
