Abstract

Isokinetic work-simulation packages have not been widely exploited by researchers and this study aimed to assess how effectively occupation-simulating tasks could identify the capabilities of recruits and be applied in the military context. In this study the isokinetic strength responses of military personnel (N=42) were recorded and used to establish benchmark data on a population not previously tested.
