Industrial Research's hand-held dynamometer provides a detailed and objective measurement of a joint’s strength throughout its range of motion.
Manual muscle testing is commonly used by clinicians and therapists as a tool for assessment and diagnosis. The hand-held dynamometer has been developed to provide a detailed and objective measurement of a joint’s strength throughout its range of motion. It can be used alongside current assessment techniques to give better information on the state of the joint and serve as a motivator for improvement.
It provides the therapist or sports coach with clear measurement of the patient's capabilities or recovery. It provides assurance to the medical insurer that “evidence-based medicine” is being practised. If the therapist changes over the course of the treatment, as is often the case with long-term injuries, then the measurements and patient records are standardised and not subject to interpretation by the therapist.
We are interested in talking to organisations who could benefit from the use of mobility devices in their environment, and with current or potential manufacturers of rehabilitation equipment and assistive devices who would like to find out more about our capabilities. We are also keen to hear from other research groups working in this field.
