Course Overview


In this course, we address the research that’s been done to underpin the basis for hand-held dynamometry. Based, in part, on the research that we published in Hand-Held Dynamometry: Guidelines for Daily Clinical Practice, this course will help students 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. The main intent of this course 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.
