Abstract

The authors investigated, by means of isokinetic tests, a group of normotonic hemiparetic patients with the aim of showing the evolution, and in the short and medium term, functional markers of muscle strength and motor patterns. The results showed that the efficacy of the synchronous techniques used was good during the period of use. In the medium term, while the recovery of strength remained constant, the motor patterns deteriorated as co-contraction of antagonistic muscle groups restarted. This did not, however, lead to functional regression in comparison with the short term result (effectiveness).
