Reflex Hammer Transducer, BSL
Part #: SS36L
The SS36L is a classic reflex hammer with a transducer attached to perform reflex measurements and record strike magnitude. Being able to measure the strength of impact allows students to take threshold measurements; that is, they can measure how much of an impact is needed to elicit a response.

The SS36L uses a Taylor Hammer—the most common type of reflex hammer used by doctors and nurses—and incorporates  electronics to record the time and the relative strength of the impact. A piezo copolymer coaxial cable is inserted into the rubber head of the hammer. When compressed or stretched, the cable generates a voltage that is somewhat proportional to the force of acceleration/deceleration; there must be an impact to generate a response signal—just swinging the hammer in the air will not produce a response.
