Hoggan Scientifics’ new RSI Rehab Strength Indicator for precise strength assessment and exercise monitoring. “A must for every Physical Therapist” – Earl Van Wagoner, Designer
Hoggan Scientific, LLC, a Utah based company and industry leading manufacturer of dynamometers, force gauges and instrumentation sensors for medical and ergonomic markets, launches its new RSI Rehab Strength Indicator. The new wireless force monitor transforms progressive resistance exercise and rehab for physical therapy, providing objective results and evidence based performance information for resistance exercise cords and bands.
Physical Therapists and other healthcare and sports medicine professionals are seeking solutions to improve skills relative to evidence-based practice. The RSI Rehab Strength Indicator is a wireless force gauge feedback device that attaches to resistance cords and bands. Combined with software, it precisely measures and records results of applied force and time of patient during exercise or rehab, that were previously subjective and unattainable.
The RSI Indicator force sensors’ compact design makes it highly portable, and the device interfaces with software that provides real time feedback of force (strength) and duration (time), and captures and stores results on IPhones and IPads. Software will soon be available for use on computer desktops and laptops, and smart phones. The device has a force capacity load of 80 lbs. force, which easily accommodates loads of resistance stretch bands and cords available in the marketplace.
“With the shift among health care professionals, just as HDD or handheld dynamometry for muscle testing objectifies MMT or manual muscle testing, the RSI Rehab Strength Indicator brings objectivity to progressive resistance exercise and rehabilitation therapy with stretch cords and bands,” says Cynthia McKenna Director of Sales at Hoggan Scientific. “The device offers a solution for physical therapists, providing data information that was previously unattainable and subjective, to accurately assess and measure patients progress, monitor compliance and report results. Patients benefit also by having feedback regarding their progress towards their rehab training goal, and the information aids in motivating towards their recovery.”
Hoggan Scientific will be introducing the RSI Rehab Strength Indicator System at the APTA-CSM Conference, February 3-6, 2014 in Las Vegas, Fabrication Enterprise booth #378.
