When used alongside the ScoreBord app, the NordBord can accurately and quickly measure hamstring strength and the balance of strength between the legs. This makes it a great tool for assessing athletes and sporting teams.
We know that taking time off due to an injury results in the loss of muscle strength and size is common. It’s important that the strength of the hamstring muscles is assessed to identify any imbalances before you are put on a personalised exercise program. Not only will this provide structure to your rehabilitation journey, but it will also reduce your chances of developing injuries related to hamstring imbalance.
According to football protocols, it’s important for a football player to have 300N strength in their hamstrings before they can return to sports. It’s also essential that both hamstrings are equal or nearly equal strength, as this minimises the risk of the injury reoccurring.
Thanks to the NordBord, we can reliably measure hamstring strength and track changes over time. This allows us to evaluate and modify rehabilitation programs and outcomes as required to help you achieve the best results possible. Not to mention, the NordBord makes performing hamstring exercises much more comfortable!
