To determine the presence of weakness.
Rate on 5-point scale:
0/5 – no muscle activity
1/5 – muscle twitching only
2/5 – some muscle activity, but can not overcome gravity
3/5 – overcome gravity, but not resistance
4/5 – able to overcome some resistance
5/5 – normal strength
Isokinetic dynometry machines (eg Cybex®, KinCom®) – use constant speed and variable resistance to test muscle strength.
