The Relationship Between Muscle Morphology and Muscle Strength
The Relationship Between Muscle Morphology and Muscle Strength

The evaluation of skeletal muscle strength in severly ill or cognitive impaired patients is an unresolved problem especially during the rehabilitation process. The aim of this study is to correlate morphological parameters assessed with muscle ultrasound and isometric muscle strength to establish an objective progression parameter for rehabilitation therapies.
