Isokinetics is an essential methodology in modern rehabilitation practice. The knowledge of the advantages and the limits associated with this method, combined with the experience acquired in many years of research, has lead to the development of the GENU ISO.
This is a compact, user-friendly, cost-effective unit, designed to work beneficially on knee flexion and extension functions. GENU ISO utilises a hydraulic brake to improve the movement fluidity while ensuring the patient’s complete safety. The dynamometric brake is integrated in the seat support structure for maximum compactness. GENU ISO is a complete system for rehabilitation, training and assessment. All measured values can be displayed in real time and saved for post-processing.
The completely new software, developed with new technologies for Windows™, is user-friendly and provides an amusing video game designed to enhance the patient’s motivation. The programmable software ensures maximum safety for the patient (the range of motion can be limited at any point of the movement either by mechanical stops or via software setting).
The special GENU PLUS bench (optional) allows performing Closed Kinetic Chain exercises.
With GENU PLUS, furthermore, there is the possibility to have an active function of the machine.
