The Chatillon® MSC Series is ideal for muscle strength testing, job task analysis and ergonomic evaluations. This compact, easy-to-use force gauge is designed for physical medicine, occupational medicine and sports medicine applications and general patient assessment in family, neurological and orthopedic practices. Simplicity was a key design criteria for both clinicians and technicians. Measurement accuracy is better than 0.1% full scale. A large, easy-to-read, high resolution dot matrix LCD display supports a variety of measurements including normal and peak readings, dominant v. non-dominant comparisons, pass/fail results, statistical results, load averaging, load comparisons, measurement actuation and direction. Measurements are displayed in ozf, gf, lbf, kgf and N units. The display can be inverted and displayed results may be “hidden” from the patient during testing. The MSC Series gauge may be specified as a basic model (MSC) or as a kit, which includes all accessories (K-MSC).
