500-Pound Electronic Output Push-Pull Dynamometer for Computer Integration
The Baseline electronic push-pull dynamometer has multiple applications making it a great tool to use to measure muscle strength, analyze job task ability and speed and perform functional capacity evaluation (FCE). This hydraulic push-pull dynamometer is easy to use and contains a transducer that generates an electric signal that can be read into a computer. This computer interface gives practitioners the ability to easily organize testing results using applicable computer software. With the help of a transducer, the test results are communicated from the dynamometer through the output wire. Baseline’s push-pull dynamometer includes an easy to read dial gauge that includes an analog output which automatically transmits test readings to the corresponding computer.
The Baseline LCD Push-Pull dynamometer has many great features including:
Lightweight and portable
3 push pads (padded curved, padded straight, and circular)
1 pull hook and 1 snap-lock hook.
Able to conduct muscle testing and functional capacity tests using a lift platform (sold separately)
Can be used with either Baseline single and dual grip handles (sold separately).
Easy to store in carrying Case
The Baseline hydraulic push-pull dynamometer has a 500-pound capacity and was designed with a dial gauge and an analog output signal making it easy to read and transmit testing results to specific computers.
Dynamometers are perfect for muscle strength measurement, job task analysis and functional capacity evaluation (FCE). Not only is the hydraulic push-pull dynamometer lightweight and portable it comes with:
- 3 push pads (padded curved, padded straight, and circular)
- 1 pull hook and 1 snap-lock hook.
The strength reading can be viewed as pounds or kilograms and is CE Certified. Using a hydraulic system ensures accurate readings and with a much lighter design (1½ lb. vs. 6lb.) it’s easier to use and transport than spring push-pull dynamometers are popular. The Baseline dynamometer dial was designed to show in instantaneous force and holds the maximum force reading, until ready for the next test. This simplifies any manual record keeping necessary for the practitioner.
The Benefits of Using a Push-Pull Dynamometer
Pushing, pulling and lifting are skills used in daily life and in specific job tasks. Analyzing push-pull ability is important in terms of screening job applicants, analyzing deficits after an injury and tracking progress through rehabilitation.
Most commonly, workers may use various pushing and pulling techniques in a wide range of activities, such as:
|Pushing or pulling manual carts and trucks|
|Pushing objects such as cartons on flat surfaces (tables, floors, etc.)|
|Operating certain tools and controls|
|Pulling open and pushing close doors|
|Wrapping and boxing up products with wrapping materials|
