Abstract

Increasing in electromechanical delay has been found in patients after ACL reconstruction using both semitendinosus and gracilis tendons. Using only one tendon may improve electromechanical delay results in patients after ACL reconstruction surgery. The purpose of the study is to evaluate electromechanical delay in ACL reconstruction patients after one tendon surgery technique. In particular, in this study, patients undergone the reconstruction surgery using the semitendinosus tendon will be evaluated. An isokinetic dynamometer will be used for the test. After warming up, patients will be ask to perform a maximally explosive isometric.
