In today’s healthcare functional testing and documentation are vital to a successful evidence-based medical practice. As part of functional testing and documentation, studies have shown that hand-held dynamometry is a reliable, objective way to obtain strength measurements. The microFET2 muscle tester by Hoggan Scientific, LLC is a handheld dynamometer that objectively quantifies muscle strength to identify areas of muscle weakness due to injury or disease.
“I use the microFet2 Dynamometer all the time. I feel it is an essential piece of equipment for OT and PT. How can you justify a strength training program when your patients measure 4/5 or 5/5 because manual muscle testing does not pick up the deficits in strength that a hand held dynamometer will? There are numerous studies that show this in both the orthopedic and neurological populations of patients,” says Carole Lewis, PT, DPT, GCS, GTC, CCOEE, MPA, MSG, PhD, FAPTA, and partner of www.greatseminarsonline.com. “Manual muscle testing is the technology of the 90″s, hand held dynamometry is the technology of this and future decades. Therapists need to get with the most recent technology so we can truly help our patients. The micoFET2 has truly changed how I practice and made me a better clinician”.
microFET2 is an essential instrument for any PT, OT or other medical professional to accurately test and assess muscle strength or weakness with ease and efficiency.
