Muscle Strength Testing
Ideal for a wide range of individual muscle groups using both the push (compression) and pull (tension) modes. The push mode, subjective observations of the manual muscle test (Kendall technique) are replaced by objective repeatable measurements. All positive features of the manual muscle test are retained: all muscle groups may be tested; positioning of the subject is easy: and the clinician (not the dynamometer) determines the body position and the point (and direction) of force application.
Three force applicators are included: a large padded circular applicator; a padded straight applicator; and a 1cm² non-padded circular applicator. Certain muscle groups like the back, leg and chest are measured using the pull mode. A swivel hook attachment is included to facilitate these and other pulling and lifting tests.
Functional Workplace Evaluations
The dynamometer is ideal for all workplace evaluations:
ADA compliance evaluation
Job Task analysis
Functional capacity evaluation
Lifting and pulling tests can be administered using the pull mode with the swivel hook attachment. Hook may be used directly or a chain may be attached to the hook to facilitate a given test protocol. Pushing tests can be administered using one of the three push attachments.
