A reflex hammer is a tool used by health professionals to test osteo-tendon reflexes. When the body is percussed, the muscles contract involuntarily. This is called osteo-tendon reflex and it is these reflexes that the hammer is used to test. Not to be confused with the swaging hammer, our items are medical instruments used in neurology. Because when we talk about reflex hammers, neurology is the key word.
The reflex hammers that we offer on the DocCheck store are the most common type on the market, the percussion type. These hammers give a quick and clean hit on the body. Some of the hammers we have on our online store are pneumatic. They deliver a softer stimulus and allow the patient's sensitivity to be spared while effectively testing their reflexes. In addition, they usually have a rubber bulb that must be squeezed to release the air in the device before pressure is applied. This type of hammer is also called (incorrectly) the no-bounce hammer. They are most appropriate for young children, the elderly and people in pain. They are also used to test the sensitivity of particularly sensitive parts of the body in certain patients, conversely, to test the sensitivity of numb or insensitive areas of the body, more robust reflex hammers are used.
As for all types of products, reflex hammers have several price ranges and several levels of quality, and there is obviously a difference between the expensive models and the more economical ones. It all depends on your needs and your means. The more expensive models are better priced and last longer, so they can be a worthwhile investment in the long run. In addition, they are more flexible and easier to handle, allowing you to spare your patients and test their reflexes without rushing them, under optimal conditions.
That said, the more economical models, despite their hard plastic parts and blunt edges, will do just fine for the purpose for which they were designed. It's all about testing reflexes and that inevitably involves shock and pressure. It all depends on your means and the standing of your clinic or practice.
We do not recommend the electronic reflex hammer or the telescopic reflex hammer because of the frequent failure of these objects.
This is one of the most classic and widely used reflex hammers. It is made of sturdy metal with rubber pears at its ends. The extra weight on the back side of the hammer increases the momentum and shock when hitting the small pear, this shape allows the hammer to be used repeatedly without getting tired. The hammer can also be used in the other direction to cushion the blow.
A large model rather suitable for adults. It is similar to the Klopp hammers with an extra weight at the back and two rubber pears, but has a hollow plastic handle instead of a metal one, it is one of the most popular models.
Queen Square reflex hammers are mainly used on the feet to test the sensitivity of the arch of the foot. They are made with a chrome-plated copper disc on one end and a point on the other.
The Buck reflex hammer is another form of the classic hammer, but less imposing, lighter and smaller. It has two hemispherical striking parts of slightly different sizes. The Buck reflex hammer is less asymmetrical than the Klopp or Trömner hammers and its appearance is more reassuring for the patients.
The Kloppi hammer is simply a variation of the Klopp model, it is smaller in size and less expensive. It is a good alternative because it has essentially the same properties.
The Colorit hammer is a pediatric reflex hammer manufactured by Zellamed with an anodized aluminum disc suitable for children due to its smiley face design. It is ideal for testing children's skin reflexes due to its shape and design, but can also be used for adults.
The Taylor hammer stands out with its characteristic shape with a triangular rubber head. The advantage of this hammer and its special design is that it is easy to clean, it is a compact and light hammer at an economical price. A very good model despite its somewhat disconcerting shape.
These are pediatric reflex hammers similar to the Colorit model. They are manufactured by the same brand Zellamed with a similar design for a similar use: the osteo-tendon reflex test in children. The Zellarit model is simply devoid of the smiling face and slightly less expensive. Its bright, pronounced and uniform colors make it a good model for children.
