This similar behaviour, as demonstrated through high to very high correlation levels, supports the validity of the electromechanical dynamometry system compared to the gold standard dynamometry device.

In the current study, all betweentests error values for single leg measurements ranged between 5.3-6.9%, similar to values seen in single leg hop (Risberg et al., 1995) and isokinetic dynamometry (Pincivero et al., 1997) reliability studies.
Dynamometry has been recently used for assessment of muscle strength for being a non-invasive, easy-to-apply and low-cost method, in addition to providing reliable muscle strength parameters (12,14 .
To our knowledge, this is the first study that used different parameters provided by knee isokinetic dynamometry to evaluate the effect of KT after 24 hours of its application.
Though this was further exemplified by her improvement in the 9HPT and the tests of dynamometry at the 7-month follow up, there is insufficient data to conclude that the FES+ThumbJam intervention made a quantifiable contribution to Snave's progress.
Next, we carried out the field tests as follows: Course Navette, dynamometry, horizontal jump, and speed 4 x 10 m.

For that matter and from a clinical point of view, the assessment of the influence of NP on muscle function is highly recommended and mainly achieved by means of standardized clinical examinations such as manual muscle testing, isometric and isokinetic dynamometry, Handgrip Strength (HGS), and by functional performance tools (e.g., timed chair stand test (CST) and indirectly by gait analysis and appraisal) [5, 7-9].
