Tendon hammers can be used to stimulate muscle spindles which elicit muscle contractions. They also provide triggering, timer or marker signals.
A piezo-electric sensor within the head, provides a momentary pulse when a surface is struck with the hammer.
The Tendon Hammer Sensor can be used in Lt, with labs in our Lt Sensor Human Physiology Collection. It plugs straight into a Windows-based laptop or desktop computer via USB connection.
