We take a look at some of the latest innovations in strength equipment from around the world EGYM ADDS ISOKINETIC MODE Digital fitness products manufacturer eGym has added an isokinetic training mode to its range of strength equipment: users can now choose isotonic or isokinetic resistance by selecting the appropriate setting. The Munichbased firm says isokinetic training reduces strain on joints, offers more precise measurement results and the ability to measure strength in joints. The isokinetic mode on eGym varies the resistance to maintain a constant speed of movement. eGym has designed the mode with athletes and sports players in mind – to train for power and acceleration – but also for the assessment of older populations and those recovering from injury.
