The patella hammer is used by medical professionals to test tendon reflexes in order to detect abnormalities in the central or peripheral nervous system.
The patella hammer was developed to incorporate modern design and functionality for eliciting myotatic and plantar responses with less effort and greater patient comfort. The silicone triangular head has a beveled apex and base to elicit myotatic reflexes, the soft base and rounded apex are perfectly suited for provoking myotatic responses by striking the precise location of tendons. It is also suited to obtain chest sounds and percuss the abdomen. The weighted chrome-plated zinc-alloy handle is precisely balanced for increased control of percussion force. The encircling band with a pin firmly secures the triangular head midway between the bumper apex and base while the handle is also designed with a pointed tip for eliciting cutaneous and plantar reflexes.
