MET announces the upcoming launch of the book Hand-Held Dynamometry: Guidelines for Daily Clinical Practice, written by physical therapist Dr. Frank Aerts and occupational therapist Becky Alwood.

“As practicing therapists ourselves, our objective from the onset was to keep applicability and ease in clinical practice as our guiding principles. We devised this step-by-step field guide to facilitate the most efficient clinical implementation,” says Frank Aerts, PT, DSc, OCS, CMP, CMPT, CMET, CCVT, in a media release.

“By doing so, we are confident that precision design, dosing, and delivery of rehabilitation will be more accurate, engaging, and beneficial to patients than it ever has been.”

Divided into five sections, the book opens with the foundation behind the science and research supporting the use of hand-held dynamometry in the modern clinical setting. It then goes on to apply the research in a systematic way. The guide goes on to show the standardized postures and positions for clinicians and clients when performing movement, muscle and exercise bias tests.

Whether it’s helping clients perform their favorite activities, regain independence, or stay engaged in a sport, the book allows the clinician to apply precision in clinical examination, exercise design, and exercise dosing. The rationale is to provide evidence-based therapy in a holistic manner—one that offers individualized metrics for the client to optimize outcomes, the release explains.
