The IsoForceControl EVO2 is now in its 3rd generation and has been used for many years by renowned specialists in medicine, research and sport all around the world.

Year after year, IsoForceControl is used to carry out important studies in the fields of medicine and research. No fewer than 41 scientific studies known to us have been carried out with it. This includes many dissertations and interesting research projects on shoulder and knee prostheses.

Through the use of our dynamometer, the proverb “To measure is to know!” is given new meaning. It allows orthopaedic surgeons to check how effective new surgical techniques are. The IsoForceControl device stores the measured values specific to individual patients, test subjects and athletes, and logs every change in muscle strength.

The IsoForceControl is also indispensable for research into and treatment of muscular and neuromuscular diseases. The device can be used not only to determine the progression of the disease, but above all to check the effectiveness of forms of therapy. Rehabilitation professionals, such as physiotherapists, also appreciate the ability to accurately measure the effectiveness of treatments and patients’ progress.

Sports physicians and trainers have also found the device useful. It opens up all sorts of new possibilities for them when reviewing training methods and injury prevention (See Studies section). Wherever muscle force has to be precisely determined and recorded, the IsoForceControl is simply the best possible choice.

Medicine and research

Technology that gets you ahead

Published studies show us that the IsoForceControl is often used in orthopaedics for tendon injuries, especially for rotator cuff ruptures. The device can be use used to document the success of new surgical methods in a personalised manner. But dynamometers also play an increasingly important role in research into muscular diseases. Subjective strength assessments have no place in the development of new drugs for muscle weakness. Their effectiveness can only be determined and assessment by recording precise force measurements.

Areas of application

Research based on precise measurements
  • Tendon injuries such as rotator cuff ruptures
  • Shoulder prosthetics, knee prosthetics, elbow prosthetics, hip prosthetics
  • Research on muscular diseases such as progressive muscular dystrophy, neural muscular atrophies (HMSN/CMT), Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), Pompe’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Friedreich’s ataxia (FA), myasthenia gravis, myositis, MDC1A, Sarcopenia
  • Development of new surgical methods in orthopedics


Make recovery visible

How much strength you have is mostly a question of subjective feeling. Especially after a serious illness or an accident, this question becomes the number one topic. It is no coincidence that we talk of “regaining your strength!” Strength makes us stand, walk and even sit. Every movement of our body requires the use of muscles and therefore strength. Is there a “norm strength” that one should have under certain conditions? Physiotherapy specialists who have been using the IsoForceControl for years have a decisive knowledge advantage here!

Areas of application

Simply regain your strength

  • As a general control of strength building after severe injuries.
  • After rotator cuff surgeries
  • After the use of knee, hip, elbow or shoulder prostheses
  • After pelvic fractures
  • After ankle joint injuries
  • As motivation for the patient through measurable and visualizable progress
  • Recognize and compensate for imbalances

Sport and training

Achieve measurable success

Whether training methods are really successful and increase the athlete’s strength is in most cases a subjective assessment by the trainer and athlete themselves. The use of a dynamometer puts an end to estimates and assumptions and exchanges them for well-founded and analytically evaluable measurements. Every success or setback is precisely recorded and serves as a perfect basis for future corrective measures. In this way, strength training can be perfectly tailored to individual athletes and successful measurements of muscle strength serve as additional motivation for the athletes.

Areas of application

Muscle power means everything in sports
  • Handball, water polo, basketball
  • Throwing sports
  • Swimming
  • Athletics
  • Weightlifting
  • Climbing
  • Bodybuilding
  • Martial Arts
  • Rowing
  • u.v.m.
