Hand Held Dynamometer

E-LINK MyoMeter - Hand Held Dynamometer

The E-LINK MyoMeter is a Hand Held Dynamometer for physiotherapists and occupational therapists to perform manual muscle strength testing (MMT) and help evaluate patient performance over time.

E-LINK Hand Held Dynamometer (MyoMeter) - Sustained Measurements

This test measures force over time for a 5, 10, 15 or 30 sec interval. Peak force, time to reach peak force, average to peak ratio percentage (sustainability) and fatigue rate are automatically calculated and immediately displayed. The current graph can be compared with a prior test to analyze progress.

Performing a Muscle Strength Test

Held by the clinician with the curved anvil placed against the body part to be tested. The limb is stabilized and held in the desired starting position.

The patient is instructed to hold the limb in position and resist the force applied by the clinician. The clinician applies force gradually until the limb is depressed. The force required to move the limb is referred to as the 'breaking force' and the measurement is recorded in the software.

Muscle Strength Progress Reports

Progress Reports can be readily generated covering a maximum of 10 tests and the data is displayed in both graph and table format. Automatic calculations show the percentage of change from one session to another, the percentage of change from the first test and the percentage comparison to standard. Ideal as an Outcome Measure and for a Discharge Summary.
