The purpose of this paper is to review the recent advances made in the field of clinical isokinetics. Presentation of various methodological issues is followed by description and discussion of the role of isokinetic dynamometry in the assessment and treatment of orthopaedic disorders, mainly of the knee and trunk regions. Attention is also drawn to the possible application of isokinetics in neurological disorders. The limitations of this technique and its possible future developments conclude the review.
