We are occupied in providing an extensive gamut of Queen Square Hammer. These products are made in compliance with worldwide industry standards.
This hammer was apparently modeled after an earlier chest percussion hammer introduced by Henry Vernon of the Great Northern Hospital in 1858. Vernon's Hammer: consists of a slender tapering handle of whalebone, eight inches in length, surmounted by a sphere of bell-metal, weighing one ounce. The sphere of metal is grooved deeply in an equatorial direction, and a stout ring of caouchouc [rubber] is let into the groove, as a cushion upon which to strike. Such is the instrument -- simplicity itself. Many people attribute the Queen Square version of the Vernon Hammer to a Miss Wintle, who was the head nurse of physiotherapy and radiology at the National Hospital for Nervous Diseases, Queen Square, London. Around 1925, she "hit upon the happy device of fitting a ring pessary to a solid brass wheel, and mounting this upon a stick of bamboo..." The bamboo cane was flexible, approximately 8 inches long and 1/4 inch in diamater. On one end, a rubber ring was tightly fitted on a 1-1/2 inch diameter brass disk. The other end was sharpened to a point for eliciting plantar and abdominal responses.
Queen Square Neurological Reflex Hammer with Pointed Tip for Superficial Responses - Black MDF® has redesigned the Queen Square Hammer with neurologist Dr. Douglas Lanska to make it even more effective for eliciting myotatic, plantar, and abdominal responses. First popularized and named at the National Hospital for Nervous Diseases in Queen Square, London, this weighted, agile percussion device features a softer silicone bumper and blunted tip for patient comfort and ease of use for the healthcare professional. A removable grip and more flexible handle ensure increased percussion accuracy and effectiveness. The red handle tip can be used as a target for testing visual fields. A new, softer silicone bumper encloses the chrome-plated brass disc and is precisely weighted to induce myotatic responses. Long, flexible nylon-plastic handle with tapered point is suited for eliciting plantar and abdominal responses.
