Early clinical and neuromuscular properties in patients with normal or sub-normal subjective knee function after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
We are happy to receive new Tensiomyography publication, where TMG was used together with Isokinetic system on 60 patients with ACL reconstructions. Both systems were compliant and each system provided different type of useful information to the researchers. Tensiomyography revealed higher biceps femoris as well as semitendinosus and semimembranosus radial displacement values on the operated leg in Normal group. Isokinetic dynamometry showed significantly higher normalised peak torque and average power of knee extensor muscles. Decreased hamstring stiffness seems to be the key to higher return-to-preinjury activity. The authors conclude that postoperative rehabilitation should be more focused on reducing hamstring stiffness.
