Occupational Medicine/Workplace Health Read more
For many industries today, poor muscular strength constitutes a risk factor for on-the-job injuries, and can predict susceptibility to many diseases. Today’s workforce is older and more obese – characteristics expected to present increasing injury and illness challenges. Many workers display a loss of up to 30% of their muscle mass as early as age 55 – and may be unable to meet the physical demands of some jobs in as little as 5 years.
As a result, industry executives require objective tools to determine whether prospective employees possess the muscular strength necessary to safely meet the demands of the positions for which they’ve applied. The Biodex System 4 Dynamometer provides objective, reproducible measures that can be correlated with the physical demands of different jobs, as determined by the Department of Labor. Such pre-employment testing enables companies to assess whether job applicants will become true assets to their workforce – or present risks of injuries, absenteeism and susceptibility to disease.
Biodex Fall Risk Program has been employed by leading clinics for over ten years. They are the only fall programs that incorporates a complete array of objective tests. Isokinetic testing will identify weakness; exercise will improve ankle and leg strength.
The Biodex Multi-Joint System has been used in over 1,000 published studies. Unique capabilities include:
Analog Signal Access Interface This optional feature provides real time analog voltage outputs of torque, position and velocity from the dynamometer. Perfect for integration with EMG devices.
Customized Motor Control through the use of the Researcher’s Tool Kit provides advanced investigator direct access to the embedded dynamometer systems. The core is an extension to the System 4 firmware which exposes the motor controls to an external interface designed by the researcher.
Curve Analysis allows the user to conduct complete neuromuscular evaluation.
