Abstract

INTRODUCTION: HUBER®, an isometric strengthening device, has been promoted as rehabilitation tool for a wide population of patients presenting heterogenous profiles. METHODS: Medline and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) were searched. Only interventional studies aiming to assess the effectiveness of HUBER® device (any versions, any protocol of intervention used) on physical rehabilitation outcomes of adults were included. Quality of studies was assessed using Cochrane RoB tools. RESULTS: Out of 142 references, six interventional studies were included in this systematic review. The number of participants included per study varied from 12 to 53, length of intervention varied from 4 to 8 weeks and number of sessions per week varied from 2 to 4. Different profiles of participants were included. Globally, training sessions using the HUBER® device showed moderate beneficial effects on the following outcomes: morphological characteristics, strength, balance and muscle power. The overall quality of the included studies was, however, rated as moderate to low. CONCLUSION: Because of its capacity to collect various physiological parameters simultaneously, the HUBER® device seems to be an interesting rehabilitation tool.
