The Phillips Biometer
One of the biggest challenges facing clinicians today is to find a biomechanical device that has good intra and intertester reliability. In a study done by Denise Freeman, D.P.M., M.S.E., Associate Professor of Podiatric Medicine, Des Moines University, College of Podiatric Medicine, Des Moines, Iowa, it was shown that the Phillips Biometer demonstrated a high degree of reliability and demonstrates a more accurate way to obtain subtalar joint measurements in the biomechanical exam.
The Phillips Biometer is designed to measure common biomechanical parameters of the lower extremity. These parameters are:
While there are many other factors which may produce an abnormal gait pattern, deviations from the normal of these parameters produce a large number of the gait abnormalities.
The Phillips Biometer is one of the most sophisticated manual goniometers made. However, the examiner must realize that it is still a manual instrument. Thus, it is extremely important that the correct techniques be used to produce reliable and reproducible measurements.
