Hoggan Scientific Promotes Its MicroFET3 for Range of Motion and Muscle Testing
Published: Sep 26, 2012
"Hoggan Scientific has been in the business since 1961 and over the past 50 years, we've built a reputation of innovative design and manufacturing expertise. Our products are extremely well created and provide medical professionals with a simple and quick way to obtain the data they need. With the microFET3, clinicians can get range of motion and muscle information with only one hand, leaving the other free to stabilize the patient. In addition, the device is wireless, which makes it much less cumbersome," said Cynthia McKenna, Hoggan Scientific's Director of Sales.
The microFET3 from Hoggan Scientific is a medical device designed to measure muscleforceand range of motion. It features an easy-to-read LCD display that shows the results as soon as the testing is completed. Results obtained with the microFET3 can be put into a table or graph, which makes the device ideal for researchers. Consumers can additionally opt to purchase accompanying software for the microFET3, which is currently compatible with Windows XP or newer operating systems. The software automatically performs any calculations and validity checks to ensure the accuracy of the information provided.
This dual function device is wireless, which allows researchers and medical professionals more room and flexibility to work. It measures six inches by eight inches, weighs less than one pound, and can be used one-handed for added convenience. The microFET3 includes three muscle testing attachments for curved, flat or digital areas and can measure in pounds, Newtons, or KgF. It offers low and high threshold settings and features accuracy rates within 1% or one degree.
The device itself costs $1,295, which includes free shipping in the United States and Canada and a standard one-year warranty. For an additional $495, customers can also purchase the clinical software package, which offers protocols for range of motion and muscle testing, and provides researchers with the ability to track patients, perform analyses or comparison statistics, and generate a variety of graphic and narrative reports.
The FET data collection software package, which also costs $495, is intended primarily for researchers and academics. The software allows users to display a graph of the results as they are obtained in real time and the graph continuously updates as raw data is entered. The information is also saved into a CSV file so that it can be accessed and manipulated in a spreadsheet program.
