The Taylor reflex hammer elicits myotatic and plantar responses with less effort and greater patient comfort. The precisely balanced handle offers increased control of percussion force. Thermo-plastic-rubber triangular head has beveled apex and base employed to elicit the myotatic reflex. The soft base and rounded apex is perfectly suited in provoking myotatic responses in striking precise location of tendons. Also suited to obtain chest sounds and to percuss the abdomen. The weighted chrome-plated handle is precisely balanced for increased control of force in the percussion. The encircling band of the handle with pin firmly secures the triangular head midway between the apex and base. The handle is also designed with a pointed tip and brush for eliciting cutaneous and plantar reflexes.
