Objective: To investigate the interday test–retest reliability of volitional and non-volitional measurements of isometric quadriceps strength using a strain-gauge in people with severe to very severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Design: Cross-sectional study. Volitional quadriceps measurements consisted of isometric maximal voluntary contractions. Non-volitional measurements were obtained during magnetic potentiated twitch stimulations of the femoral nerve. Setting: Research centre laboratory. Participants: Twenty-four …
