The Electronic Muscle Tester is a
breakthrough in technology that brings the useful technique of muscle
testing into the areas of scientific measurement.
This unique instrument based on the
work of Buryl Payne, Ph.D. is used to test and measure muscle strength
when squeezed by the hand. This replaces the traditional arm test where the tester forces
the test subject arm down and gives a less subjective result.
The instrument gives a readout of the
Maximum force of the squeeze and the speed of the squeeze on the
analog display. Substances which give a higher result are
strengthening and therefore presumably good for you, while substances
which give a lower result are weakening and therefore presumably not
good for you.
You can also check the effect of
forces in the environment such as microwave ovens, computers, by testing
with them on and off to see any change.
The technique of testing the strength
or weakness of a muscle has been taught to chiropractors for over a
George Goodhart, D.C. has been one of the chief proponents of
developed the technique further and discovered that the relative
strength of different muscles is associated with specific glands and
organs. When the client puts a finger on a particular gland or
organ and the associated muscle strength is tested, it will be weaker if
that gland or organ is malfunctioning.
This system is called "Touch for
Health", and has been widely taught for over eight years. Other people
found that foods, vitamins, herbs and other substances also affected the
strength of muscles as well as thoughts and emotions. This system has
come to be called
The instrument uses a 9 volt
rechargeable battery and comes with a charger. These are manufactured by
Jim Otrowski, manager of Turbo Magnetics, who makes a very well designed
