View Full Version : Biceps Tendon Tapper

11-14-2005, 04:36 AM
We are looking for a device (a tendon tapper) to initiate the stretch reflex of the biceps tendon. Ideally we would like a device which can control the force, velocity and postion of the tap. The device which seems to be most widely used is a hand-held electromechanical tapper - either model 201 or 101- made by Ling-Altec Ltd, Royston, UK. However, this doesn't appear to be on the market any more.
Does anyone know of a suitable device which is available to buy? Or do you have any suggestions on where we could find one?

Many thanks,
