NordBord Test Types

With the NordBord, you can run several pre-programmed hamstring tests:

  • Nordic
  • Razor
  • ISO Prone (0°)
  • ISO 30°
  • ISO 60°
  • Custom (name your own)
Nordic Contraction mode: eccentric
Rep Detection: bilateral (i.e. both legs must contract simultaneously to register a rep during a test)
Position: starting upright, finishing in push-up position
Description: the most common NordBord test, and the best supported by research

Razor Contraction mode: eccentric
Rep Detection: bilateral (i.e. both legs must contract simultaneously to register a rep during a test)
Position: starting bent over, finishing in push-up position
Description: a common alternative to the Nordic, albeit typically less popular
ISO Prone Contraction mode: isometric
Rep Detection: unilateral (i.e. legs can contract simultaneously or one at a time to register reps during a test)
Position: prone or "bridge" position, with 0° of knee flexion
Description: an end-range isometric strength test

ISO 30° Contraction mode: isometric
Rep Detection: unilateral (i.e. legs can contract simultaneously or one at a time to register reps during a test)
Position: on hands and knees, with 30° of knee flexion
Description: the most common isometric NordBord test.  A long-length isometric strength test, often used to roughly mimic the knee joint angle during the "strike" position in running gait

ISO 60° Contraction mode: isometric
Rep Detection: unilateral (i.e. legs can contract simultaneously or one at a time to register reps during a test)
Position: on hands and knees, with 60° of knee
Description: a shorter-length isometric strength test

Custom Rep Detection: unilateral (i.e. legs can contract simultaneously or one at a time to register reps during a test)
Description: enter your own custom test name, and perform your own protocol as desired
