Clinical Benchmark Study
Dr. Steinberg and his co-authors report on a benchmark clinical study validating quantitative muscle hardness and a device developed by Dr. Steinberg. In general, the device can be used to evaluate limb swelling, limb pain, muscle tone and muscle spasm. Also, the device can aid in the evaluation of medical conditions, such as limb edema, limb trauma, cellulitis, infections, hematoma, insect bites, snake bites, allergic reactions, contusions, stroke, cerebral palsy, paralysis, contractures, muscle strains and muscle ruptures.
There is demonstrated interest and excitement by the medical community for this device. It is non-invasive and shows great promise in providing additional diagnostic information for physicians thanks to Dr. Steinbergs groundbreaking research.
