Shimpo Mechanical Force Gauge Physical Therapy/Ergonomic Testing Kits


For muscle strength and ergonomic force testing, the SHIMPO Physical Therapy Kits with Mechanical Force Gauge have just the right ingredients for the professional Physical Therapist or Ergonomist. Lightweight, rugged and simple to use, these kits are great for isokinetic testing and job task analysis. Available with mechanical force gauges in 100 lb or 50 kg capacities, these PT kits are ergonomically crafted for convenient operation.

All kits are capable of displaying peak compression, tension or real time forces. The peak force mode features an easy push-button reset; especially helpful for doing repetitive testing. The large dial indicator allows viewing of force changes as they occur and reduces the chance for parallax errors when taking readings. Due to its mechanical design, response time is immediate. Calibration is achieved by a set of precisely matched springs which are overload protected to 165 lb (75 kg). The rugged MF gauges feature a die-cast aluminum housing. These handsome kits are equipped with padded ERGO accessories, adapters and N.I.S.T. traceable certificates of calibration. Due to their features these Physical Therapy kits are ideal for ADA compliance, workplace design and ergonomic studies.
