The test is performed with the clinician applying force to the limb of a patient. The objective of the test is for the clinician to overcome or “break” the patient’s resistance. The MMT records the peak force and the time required to achieve the “break” providing reliable, accurate, and stable muscle strength readings that conform to most manual muscle testing protocols.
The MMT also features interactive menus to allow a wide range of options such as data storage, preset test times and force thresholds to be implemented. While powerful and versatile, the MMT is still small enough to fit comfortably in the palm of the hand. Its ergonomic design allows for both patient and tester comfort while easily conforming to manual muscle testing protocols.
The MMT uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with a battery life of 6 hrs when powered on and has a range of 0-135kg (300lb/1335N) with an accuracy of ± 1 % over full scale. It is supplied with three easy to change molded plastic stirrups with pads, a power supply/charger, sturdy carry case and a Calibration Certificate. It is microprocessor controlled with an easy to read graphical LCD display with data storage for up to 150 tests in on-board memory.
