Isometric strength testing has commonly been used to evaluate human strength capability. Recently it has been proposed by NIOSH (Work Practices Guide for Manual Lifting) as a form of administrative control for injury prevention. Historically, the number of trials used for each person-test combination has been arbitrarily selected and is often undocumented. The authors propose a criterion for isometric testing and report some results from using this criterion.
