Shirley, NY, September 10, 2012—It’s not surprising that the International Olympic Committee would invite George J. Davies, DPT, MEd, PT, SCS, ATC, CSCS, FAPTA, Professor of Physical Therapy from Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, GA, to present on Application of Isokinetic Testing and Rehabilitation in workshops at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
A pioneer in Isokinetic testing and rehabilitation, Davies wrote the first book on isokinetics in 1984, A Compendium of Isokinetics in Clinical Usage, and has been using isokinetics for testing and rehabilitation of patients/athletes for almost 40 years. He has also presented and published many abstracts, articles, and book chapters that have used isokinetics in testing, rehabilitation or training techniques.
Davies presented in the two workshops focused on Application of Isokinetic Testing and Rehabilitation (one workshop focused on the Shoulder Complex and the other on the Knee, using an Integrated OKC and CKC Approach).
The presentations were followed by a practical demonstration and hands-on workshop featuring the pioneer in isokentic testing and rehab technology, the Biodex Multi-Joint System 4.
Used extensively for neuromuscular testing, rehabilitation, and research studies, the Biodex System 4 provides unique, finite dynamometer control that allows isokinetics to play an important role in a wide array of settings including university research laboratories, athletic training facilities, private practice and hospital outpatient clinics.
The workshops drew in top attendance from physicians, physical therapists, and athletic trainers from all over the world—all of who came to see first-hand, the pioneers in Isokinetic testing and rehabilitation.
