Abstract

This case study reports the effects of isokinetic strength training on subjective evaluation, knee range of motion,
hamstring and quadriceps strength, hamstring and quadriceps peak torque production. Biodex System 3 Pro was used
to train an anterior cruciate ligament -injured athlete for 15 sessions at five different velocities in both knee flexion and
extension. 2000 International knee documentation Committee score improved by 147% while hamstring and quadriceps
strength increased by 358% and 305% respectively. Speed-specific hamstring peak torques showed marked increments
(132% - 408%). Similarly, quadriceps’ peak torques increased by 81% to 213%).
