Overview

The Mecmesin Myometer is the ideal instrument for the measurement of patient physiological strength. It provides healthcare professionals with an invaluable tool for the assessment of injury and disease progression, and treatment success. Additionally, as a sports training aid, it can objectively assess muscle development. It is supplied with accessories to enable fixed-point testing, the method established as providing the most reliable results compared to using hand-held devices.

The instrument can be securely clamped to a desk and the patient's limb held in an adjustable strap to provide the most consistent and accurate measurement.The patient pulls against the restraint and the Myometer records and clearly displays the resistive force.

The standard Constant score calculation method of the muscle strength element of shoulder joint functional assessment can be automatically implemented and the results displayed immediately the test is completed. From the start of the test, the Myometer records the applied load at 2 and 3 seconds, the maximum value, and the mean load between 1 and 4 seconds.

EmperorTM Lite data acquisition software

The Myometer can be supplied with Mecmesin's Windows-based software for logging, plotting and analysing the data.

Emperor™ Lite enables a PC to communicate with the instrument by means of a bi-directional RS232 interface. The software retrieves the data, which is then accumulated and plotted as a function of time. You can then quickly and easily perform in-depth analysis of measurement from the graphical trace of the test.

Features

  • Simple-to-use graphical interface
  • View each test ‘live’ on a PC screen
  • Perform multiple calculations e.g. peak, average, trough and area under trace values
  • Easily identify and label critical measurement values and success/failure points during the test
  • Customisation enables annotations and titles to be added to the graph
  • Overlay multiple curves for comparative analysis
  • Data can be printed or exported to spreadsheets
