Neurological Reflex TAYLOR PERCUSSION Hammer
NEUROLOGICAL TAYLOR REFLEX PERCUSSION HAMMER
The Taylor Reflex Hammer is a classic diagnostic neurological medical instrument used to test joint reflexes or bone fractures in the joints. This Taylor Hammer features a triangular rubber head with a sturdy metal handle. It is widely used by practitioners to test deep tendon reflexes. The triangle resembles the historical tomahawk, hence the nickname. Testing for reflexes is an important part of the neurological physical examination in order to detect abnormalities in the central or peripheral nervous system.
