Reflex-hammer “Klopp” from DocCheck
The heavier construction relative to other reflex hammers is actually an advantage as it promotes correct handling. With gravity assisting, it is easier for the user to strike with the same force every time. This results in getting reflex responses that are actually comparable and therefore aids in recognizing heightened or reduced reflexes with certainty.
The metal handle is balanced to give a good swing and is pointed at the end for the stimulation of skin and plantar muscle reflexes.
- the most popular reflex hammer
- grip with neurologic point for stimulating stretch and skin reflexes
- metal grip
- length 24 cm
- weight ca. 170 g (metal version) respectively ca. 210 g (Black Edition)
