Description

Medical Exercises Therapy - Level 1: Hand Held Dynamometry


Objective:

The main objective of Level 1: Clinical Dynamometry is for clinicians to obtain the skill set for using a handheld dynamometer as a valid and reliable assessment tool in daily clinical practice. The different instruments, assessment and utilization modes are examined. With a mix of lecture and extensive lab practice, this course enables clinicians to immediately implement the use of clinical dynamometry.


Target Audience:

Physical Therapist, Physical Therapist Assistant, Occupational Therapist, Occupational Therapist Assistant, Athletic Trainer


Upon completion of this course the student will:

  • Define the quantities of mass, force, internal and external torque, torque ratios
  • Identify 2 reasons for using handheld dynamometry in addition to manual muscle testing
  • Distinguish when to use a break technique vs. a make technique
  • Analyze the existing research on validity and reliability of handheld dynamometry
  • Identify how to increase reliability with the technique by standardizing the position of the patient, the provider, and the instrument.
  • Justify handheld dynamometry as a tool for clinical documentation, demonstrating progress, and patient motivation
  • Interpret the results of a handheld dynamometer test assessing strength with movement bias
  • Interpret the results of a handheld dynamometer test assessing strength with muscle/muscle group bias
  • Interpret the results of a handheld dynamometer test assessing the initial resistance for a Clinical Fatigue Test
  • Interpret the results of a handheld dynamometer test assessing strength for each of the following: upper quadrant, lower quadrant and spine
