Halo Medical Devices Release: Next Generation Digital Goniometer Device Provides a Precision Measurement Tool to Health Practitioners


3/13/2013 8:29:14 AM

PERTH, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - March 13, 2013) - An innovative new approach to measuring the range of motion for peripheral joints and the spine that uses laser accuracy is now available to deliver precision therapy to patients of a variety of practitioners.

This medical device will clearly improve patient care and enhance practice management as it is more accurate (+/- 1 degree), requires one hand to use, measures in three planes and is quicker and more reliable than its manual counterpart that has been around for nearly 40 years. The device has been clinically validated in two Australian universities and units have been sold to elite sporting clubs, Universities, leading hospitals and private practitioners.

The digital goniometer was recently launched at the American Physical Therapy Association Combined Sections Meeting in San Diego and practitioners and students were highly responsive to it. Several leading institutions, including the MAYO clinic, will now be clinically validating it in their own facilities for an array of applications. Mr Marty Jaramillo, Physical Therapist, CEO and founder of I.C.E Sports Therapy, said, "It took me less than 3 minutes to realize that this device is perfect for my four practices in New York and Washington DC, and that's why I bought several units. Our ROM measurements are significantly more consistent amongst clinical staff."

CEO of Halo Medical Devices, Ms Hayley Warren commented, "After 5 years of research and development, we have commercialised an affordable and evidence based medical device that will clearly provide precise measurements for those practitioners requiring this level of information."

The unit will deliver measurable, tangible benefits to a wide range of health professionals including adult, pediatric and animal physical rehabilitation, occupational therapy and sports medicine and will provide a much-needed tool for medical research.

The Halo Medical Device is highly affordable and readily available for convenient purchase online at USD$245.00 inclusive of shipping. Visit www.halomedicaldevices.com for a demonstration.

The company seeks direct sales and interests from strategic alliance partners.
