Quick User Guide
  1. Fix a 10 cm long loop of thread (20 cm total) onto button.
  2. The curved side of the button facing the scale, attach the loop of thread securely to the eye-hook at base of scale.
  3. Adjust the zero position with the tare screw, holding the scale horizontally.
  4. Move the white drag pointer towards zero.
  5. The patient places the button in front of teeth and closes lips.
  6. Shortly before measurement the patient should be requested to close lips as tightly as possible.
  7. Holding the bow, the therapist steadily pulls the scale away from the patient's mouth until the button pops out. Maintain the same pulling speed for every measurement.
  8. Read and record the maximum resistance shown by position of the white drag pointer.
  9. Repeat the procedure 3 times to determine average measurement. The progress of muscular training can thus be periodically checked.
