ENRAF-NONIUS ENTREE


EntreeM

WHAT DOES IT DO?

The Entree system is a Windows-linked stack-weight isoinertial machine which can be used to assess the efficiency of movement and strength in both testing and rehabilitation settings.

Assessment of: Power, velocity, force and work

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The system works on a single or double wire pulley which is connected to a weights stack system section. Various movement patterns are executed by upper- and lower limbs when testing clients. The computer allows for graphical comparisons of different sides of the body and also for test/re-test protocols.

WHAT ARE THE USES OF THE DATA?
Data are particularly useful in a rehabilitation setting, as the graphs of early testing of strength and range of motion can be compared to repetitions completed at a later stage. The data may also be useful in disability assessment where imbalances in muscle strength on the left and right side can be identified and targeted.
