The Jackson Strength Evaluation System, available through the Lafayette, Ind-based Lafayette Instrument Company, is built for use by rehabilitation professionals to monitor recovery from injury and by industrial testing specialists to assess the ability of job applicants to perform physically demanding work tasks. The company’s website notes that the system was developed by Dr Andrew Jackson at the University of Houston. The system features an electronic load cell, built for accurate and reliable measurements of isometric strength and a Nexus table designed to interface with the load cell via Bluetooth.
The site notes that the system is engineered to meet the needs of Jackson lift, torso and pull strength protocols, and the lift tasks of the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The system is also marketed with detailed instructions for the recommended strength tests and offers standardized test protocols and normative data.
