Lower limb strength measurement method

Experimental taskMuscle strength measurement postureposition
Hip joint flexionTake a sitting position on a backrest chair with armrests. Both hands are placed in a relaxed position on the armrest and the pelvis is secured with a strap for the accuracy of the strength measurement.. The hip and knee joints have a 90 degree angle and ankles take a neutral position away from the ground.21The front of the femur bone, the upper edge of the patella bone 5cm is located on the body side.
Hip joint extensionTake a lying position immediately on the therapeutic bed. In order to prevent the stability of the pelvis and the back of the lumbar spine, the pelvis is fixed with a strap. The hip and knee joint is 90 degrees and ankle joint is measured with resistance to the proximal to popliteal crease do.22It is located on the proximal to popliteal crease.
Hip joint abductionTake a supine immediately in the therapeutic bed. Stability of the pelvis and lumbar spine to prevent forward banding, the pelvis is fixed with a strap, and the hip joint abduction is measured in full extension and ankle joint neutralization of the hip and knee joint.23It is located on the side of the femur bone, on the lower end of the body.
Knee joint flexionTake a seat on the chair with the backrest and the subject puts his hands comfortably on the armrest.It is located on the back of the tibia bone, 5cm from the lower end of the malleolus.
Using the strap, the pelvis is fixed to the chair, and the foot is measured at 90 degrees of the hips and knees joint without supporting it.22
