This study aims to quantify the value of tech sock for these athletes in the isokinetic test, to assess and to determine if indeed the subjective opinions of elite athletes that guarantee the welfare of the sock are measurable by isokinetic dynamometry. The isokinetic test tests were established at two different speeds in order to see whether slow execution speeds where more fibers are recruited type I (ST) there were significant differences between tests performed with and without tech sock, unlike fast execution speeds, where motor fibers are recruited less and those who are recruited are mostly type II (FT) (12). In the field of injury prevention: by isokinetic dynamometry can identify a muscle deficit is not detectable by other systems (7). The parameters considered are those commonly studied in isokinetic testing as peak torque, power, total work and average power (10) in relation to the maximum moment, has not chosen the variable peak torque / body weight and no differences significant between anthropometric measurements of the sample (17). The results show a predominance of plantar flexor muscles compared with extensor plantar due to the amount of muscle mass each anatomical area (12).
This refers to both the PT (peak torque), TW (total work), AP (average porter), MW (maximum work) and SEC, behaving as within normal parameters. The values obtained at low speeds are higher than those obtained at high speeds which is also interpreted as normal (20). The results of our study differ depending on the variable to be considered as the most significant differences for peak torque has been found that the maximum peak forces were achieved in the plantar flexion phase and speed, what can be interpreted as a greater muscle mass, greater efficiency exerted by the muscle and a greater percentage of difference between using or not, tech sock.
