Improve your reflex exam skills
Improved Clinician Confidence
We have developed a patent-pending "novel" approach to the traditional reflex hammer.
The current deep tendon reflex examination is subjective; each clinician has developed their own "feel" for the appropriate amount of impact during the physical exam. The RFX Hammer was designed to improve the objectivity of the examination by quantification.
The RFX Hammer provides the clinician with confidence that their strikes are consistent and repeatable.
We don't want to disrupt your flow!
The RFX Hammer provides instantaneous feedback to the clinician at the bedside, empowering clinicians to complete the physical exam their way.
Our design is built upon the traditional Queen Square hammer. The LED indicators are on the bottom face of the device, and indicate increasing magnitudes of impact based on the number of lights that illuminate. The hammer is pre-calibrated to assess forces from 0 - 100 Newtons, and the results from each strike can be read from most angles.
Improved Patient Outcomes
The physical exam is a critical part of the doctor-patient encounter.
RFX Hammer is an interactive tool that empowers patients to ask questions and express interest in the exam. The engaging LEDs, clean design and efficient readings lead to a more positive interaction and aims to decrease the intrusive nature of physical exams.
RFX hammer is also an objective tool, thus empowering clinicians to rely less on the subjectivity of their current physical exam skills. By using RFX hammer, clinicians will quickly learn how to best strike the tendon, thus improving consistency and repeatability.
Our goal is to improve inter- and intra- observer variability in the reflex examination!
