Validation of an experimental isokinetic device called iMoment for testing injured people and athletes has been carried out. The device must allow the user to perform comprehensive testing of abilities, stretching and fitness, and to systematically record results. Prior to the commencement of general use, we checked the accuracy deviation of the measurements from the true values and their repeatability.
Validation was undertaken with a protocol consisting of static and dynamic measurement. Dynamic measurement was further divided into Continuous Passive Movement (CPM) and isokinetic measurement. The data obtained with the calibration measuring system were
processed with Excel and compared with the measurements of the iMoment device.
The results showed variations in speed and torque from our calibration values. The diploma work examined possible reasons for the discrepancies and suggested improvements to the iMoment device and the measurement system itself for further testing.
