I am posting to bring to your attention a new product coming in Fall 2009.

ROM inclinometer is a compact, cost effective inclinometer for use in professional biometric measurement. Gravity based calibration insures accurate and repeatable measurements. This inclinometer is compact enough to slip into a pocket yet has large, easy to read numbering and increments. The smooth, continuous surfaces are easy to keep clean in clinical use. Repeatable accuracy is easily less than +/- 1 degree. Limitation is generally how steady the patient is at each reading point and steadiness of position held by the therapist.

This product will be available for online orders in the Fall of 2009. Please visit the web site at ROM inclinometer for information. You may send an email to receive notice when product is ready to ship.

Thank you for your consideration.

WOW!!

You've managed to create a dial with a weighted spindle on it. How INNOVATIVE!!!

There are much more ergonomic (at least from first glance) inclinometers out there which have this one's level of sophistication or much better for chump change. No idea why or how this guy expects to make money on this one.

Thank you for your professional and informative reply Nucca. I appreciate your experienced opinions of this product.

The claim is not that this is a "new" innovation but, it is a much more cost effective AND ergonomic product solution than any of the current inclinometers on the market.
It utilizes a form of existing technology to do so, as do the other inclinometers on the market. This problem and solution fortunately, did not require a re-inventing of the wheel.

If $70 -$150 for the current inclinometers on the market is "chump change" to you, I would suggest you pay far too much for your clinic's equipment.

That is the current price range I see for the over-engineered inclinometers on the market. The ROM Inclinometer will be FAR less expensive than the current inclinometers and is better suited to the task by it's technology, compact-ergonomic form and value.

I am glad to hear the current manufacturers will likely maintain you as a customer. Someone needs to keep the over priced units on the market in order to create a niche for sensibly priced equipment.

Best Wishes,
Doug Montgomery

I actually don't use inclinometers in my practice because I don't find them convenient nor accurate enough. What I do use is a device called Zebris which uses ultrasonic pulses, multiple miniature microphones, and an array of speakers to very accurately (and in 3 dimensions) position and track the movement of a patient through CROM as well as for taking detailed postural measurements. I am in the process of developing something even more effective and accurate, but for now what I use is the best item on the market.

And yes,$70 -$100 for something that I'll buy once and then not need to buy another for more than 10 years (if I was using inclinometers) is chump change. It's not like they are a disposable product.

Beyond crazy. Those "nucca" chiropractors believe that ALL illnesses arise from the slightest (micrometer) "misalignments of ONLY the top vertebrae.

And of course ... there is absolutely NO evidence to support such quackery. Yet they scam innocent and depserate people out of their hard earned money.

These nucca chiropractors are but the tip of the quack chiropractic iceberg. Proving that chiropractic has NOT advanced one bit from the days of their founders ... fish monger, snake oil salesmen bj palmer and dd palmer.

These quacks belong i jail. Each and every one of them.

Good advice from the fraud wisdom who is no MD and no DC. He folded yet again when he said he'd post his 'credentials' on linkedin. Yup, folded again. See, cons, like cockroaches, scatter when the lights go on. Wisdom is a con. No degree+no license=fraud.
