But RFX is now flowing.
The world shut down due to COVID-19. RFX did the same. We cut our losses, regrouped with our families, and hunkered down to survive the winter. We remembered what was important to us during this time, and why we started this little company; to bring back the lost art of the clinical exam. We could not give up on this mission, and so now that the world is opening up again, so are we.
And thus, let us re-introduce this little device to you: Enter RFX hammer.
It looks a lot like your everyday reflex hammer, but under its hood hides a special power. The power of force; the measurement of force that is. With every strike of a tendon, or percussion, small lights on its surface indicate the force of your strike.
This important metric is informative. It tells you if your strike was enough to elicit a reflex. Research says that you need at least 30N. So strike away!
But what if you strike a bit softer, say 15N? Well thats informative too. If your patient has a reflex, they may be hyper-reflexic. This indicates underlying upper motor neuron pathology.
What about consistency? As a clinician, do you know if your reflex exam is consistent from patient to patient? Or from day to day? With RFX Hammer, that becomes easy to keep track of. Every strike is provided with feedback, that keeps your exam honest.
RFX Hammer is back, and here to provide consistency to the clinical examination. The lost art of the clinical exam? Not while we're here.
Here's to the flow!
