Ergonomic Kits & Medical Dynamometers

To monitor patient progress or ensure employee safety with OSHA and other job standards, job task analysis and ergonomic assessment are critical. Our product offering of Ergonomic Kits & Medical Dynamometers include simple, ergonomically designed hand held medical dynamometers designed to let you objectively measure manual muscle strength, perform muscle testing and job task analysis for a fraction of the cost of expensive computer controlled physical therapy equipment. Ergonomic Kits and Medical Dynamometers measure the force required to push, and lift thereby ensuring compliance to regulatory and internally developed standards. Designed to serve the the needs of physical therapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation therapy,sports medicine and patient assessment, these completely portable instruments can easily be used in clinics, offices or hospitals to test arm, leg, hand and back strength. Ideal for workplace design, strength assessment, and ergonomic studies.

Types of Testing include:

  • Physical Therapy¬†– Accurately measure and document musculoskeletal strength to determine patient condition and serially track progress. Test the strength of physical muscle groups.Evaluate individual muscle groups in extension, flexion, internal/external rotation, plantar flexion, dorsal flexion, or abduction/adduction..
  • Occupation Therapy¬†– Conduct job task analysis, ergonomic analysis, and ADA compliance evaluations. Measure the actual forces required to push, pull, or lift to determine exactly what a job requires. Quantitatively evaluate an employee’s or prospective employee’s ability to perform the tasks.
  • Rehabilitation Therapy – Compare a patient’s current abilities to the actual job requirements. Ensure that an employee is really ready to return to work after an injury.
  • Sports Medicine – Quantify an athlete’s strength. Evaluate the effectiveness of a planned training program.
  • Patient Assessment – Patient Assessment in family practice, neurology, orthopedic surgery, etc. to determine the actual strength of a patient’s various muscle groups to establish baseline readings or measure changes over time.

Some examples of uses of Ergonomic Kits and Medical Dynamometers also include pushing a wheelchair or cart, loading and unloading boxes, fitness assessment, muscle strength training, pulling items from shelves.

Furthemore, to ensure your confidence in our Ergonomic Kits and Medical Dyanometers most include a NIST traceable calibration certificate at no additional charge.
