Kin Com Testing - At Mercy Physio we frequently use the Kin Com to compare strength of the injured side verses the uninjured side.
The Kin Com muscle testing machine has a computer attached which objectively calculates the force generated by specific muscle groups. Analysis of this data ensures that return to sport is at the optimum time post rehabilitation.
Examples of injuries where Kin Com is useful
- Post knee surgery (e.g. ACL recon, cartilage repairs, arthroscopy)
- Post tendon repair surgery (e.g. hamstring or quad tendon repair)
- After quadriceps or hamstring muscle tears.
