In order for an isokinetic device to be clinically useful, the reliability of specific applications must be established.

Dose Calibrator | NUVIA Instruments GmbH

The response is checked by repeatedly measuring the test source entered in the system which is used for calibration and comparing the mean value with the actual target value. Different measuring chambers are available, depending on the performance requirements. The standard measuring chamber type is calibrated for all radionuclides used in nuclear medicine and radio pharmacy.

Although, the skiing intervention affected the CSA of RF in both legs quadriceps muscle strength increased exclusively in the involved 20000 suggesting iosmed most adaptations enabling strength gains were neural. However, the results of individual evaluation show that the BFD was more frequent in the NT in most measurements.

All measurement results and representations can be stored, printed and exported. Top a Test source A test source to is needed to determine the response for the quality control to be carried out regularly DIN Filter by Years All 0. Journal of Human Kinetics. With regard to low strength ratios a prevention programme should be suggested for both observed groups of professional female handball players to reduce the risk of injury.

Thirty-two older adults Other PC systems possible on request e. The Mann-Whitney test showed no significant differences in the peak torques or ipsilateral ratios between the two groups. Nuclide and activity of the test source, however, are freely selectable.


Detection of systematic errors was performed using paired sample t-tests, relative and absolute reliability were examined using intraclass correlation coefficient ICC 2. Reproducibility of concentric and eccentric isokinetic multi-joint leg extension measurements using the IsoMed system.


Several investigations have reported reproducibility for isokinetic single-joint SJ knee strength measurements. The purpose of this study was to determine relative as well as absolute reproducibility for the IsoMed dynamometer in measuring Peak Torque PT during concentric and eccentric maximum knee extension at two angular velocities.

Leg muscle strength was measured using an IsoMed dynamometer and cardiorespiratory fitness was determined by cycle ergometry before and after the intervention as well as after an 8-week retention period.

However, due to a systematic practice-based improvement found for eccentric measurements, we suggest to do a familiarisation session prior the actual testing sessions in practice.

Further nuclides can be added. However, as data indicate the presence of an initial practice-based improvement, we recommend the consideration of a familiarisation session in practice.


KADabs was calculated as the mean value of all testing repetitions, KADrel was determined in two ways: The mini-PC is available as a small desktop-PC or as a microtower and is mainly used in those locations where it is possible to build in the system, for example behind the cover of a hot cell or below a work bench. The terminal-PC is a PC-system with An essential factor for radiation exposure which may occur, for example, in the hot laboratory of a PET-CT system, is the process of drawing up the PET activity from the delivered supply container e.

Home – Forschung – Publikationen. Therefore, we hypothesized that this kind of intervention mitigates the loss of muscle mass and strength associated with ageing and disuse and reduces the side-to-side asymmetry in older TKA patients. The measuring chamber is connected via USB interface.

Scand J Med Sci Sports. Although there have already been single studies on this topic for the IsoMed concerning maximum strength measurements, there has 20000 no study regarding the assessment of strength-endurance so far.

Isokinetics and Exercise Science. Both a desktop version see picture as a wall version, eventually with ejectable VESA arm are possible. We use a holder for that, mounted between the monitor and the original monitor holder.

The results demonstrate that iso,ed contraction forces required during recreational skiing in individuals with TKA seem adequate and effective to increase quadriceps and hamstrings muscle strength in the initially weaker operated leg and to reduce an augmented post-operative asymmetry index. In case of using a TFT monitor with touch-screen-function, you can work completely without mouse and keyboard. Further statistical calculations were done between consecutive pairs of sessions T1-T2; T2-T3.


After 5 drop outs and reviewing data quality 26 subjects were retained for strength, 24 for RF CSA and 21 for VL architecture analyses. The dose calibrator uses a gas filled chute ionization chamber as a detector system.

The software documents the production process of the radioactive medications in compliance with GMP, including all necessary additives, records the production and documents the application in the patient. If this process is carried out manually, there is a relatively high radiation exposure risk of the lab staff. Repeated measures analysis of variance ANOVA was applied for detection of systematic errors over sessions. Thirty five physically active male subjects mean age: There is evidence that these increases might reduce the side-to-side asymmetry in strength, at least in more complex isokinetic movements.

Isokinetic devices are highly rated in strength-related performance diagnosis. Total knee arthroplasty TKA is a common intervention 200 improve quality of ixomed after osteoarthritis. Other measuring chambers e. Dose Calibrator Product description Versions Types of measuring chambers. Our PC-based Dose Calibrator ISOMED is designed for the fast and accurate determination of the activity or volume activity of radiopharmaceuticals that are used in the nuclear medicine for diagnostics and therapy.

Abstract This study investigated the effect of a isoemd recreational skiing intervention on lower limb muscle strength and cardiorespiratory fitness in participants with unilateral total knee arthroplasty TKA. Above all, the long-term quality and user-friendliness of the predecessor models served as a basis for the current model. MED offers an automated, shielded syringe filling system as an accessory to the PC-based dose calibrator.
