Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy
To the Physical Therapist/Physiotherapist. HALO was designed by our Australian Physiotherapy team for you. This industry is competitive and we need to present and practice with the best tools available to separate from competing professions. The manual or standard goniometer is over 40 years old and when used between two therapists has an error of up to 35 degrees. Good enough for your profession? No. Absolutely not. If your clinic, hospital, practice has more than one therapist then you have an inter-rater issue: Error between your therapists when measuring joints. This is the very problem we have solved with HALO. Patients report feeling a greater sense of trust with you when having HALO used on them, because they can see it is the latest technology. In their minds you are using the best tools which translates to patients feeling you offer a superior level of care. Besides superior benefits of HALO, such as the 1 degree of accuracy and the ability to capture any joint range in less than 5 seconds. Trust is key in keeping the patient, private client, returning to your practice. HALO is designed to evolve the practice of joint ranging, with its accuracy, reliability and speed. Lead the way, use HALO. Read what other therapists are saying about HALO

Students demand the latest technology; after all they use this in their lives every single day. HALO offers this. When measuring joints students report reading out the wrong numbers to examiners, not knowing how to use a goniometer, guessing ranges and holding the goniometer over the joint the wrong way. Any of these problems sound familiar? Yes, we have heard you, which is why we want to equip the next generation of therapists with the best. Here at HALO Medical Devices we support Educational facilities with additional, exclusive Inventor to University support. One on one support to your tutors. We believe its essential to offer this technology to you so you can provide your students an even greater learning experience and to separate your University or College from the next.

We believe optimal assessment and rehabilitation of animals is essential. Veterinarian Medicine often requires assessment of joint angles to look at such conditions as lameness in the area of Equine or in post surgery ranges on animals like dogs and cats. Taking precision joint ranges to understand the efficacy of treatment objectively in animals is even more essential than in humans, as the luxury of specific subjective measures is predominately absent. Objective measures and tools that capture them are therefore of great importance. Support and secure your patient with one hand while taking range with your free hand. You no longer need to use two hands to capture joint range with HALO. With a durable casing ideal for any Vet Clinic, HALO offers you a new level of precision to capture range with speed and accuracy.

When is comes to the complexity of the lower limb we have found Podiatrists choose HALO. The laser markers allow you to align HALO along any length limb. How do we know we have this covered? Because we designed the laser length on HALO based off the limb length of basketball players. Why does this matter? Because without the arms of a tool being long enough to intersect with landmarks on the body, there is no repeatable measure. Repeatable measures are critical in understanding if the patient if improving or getting worse on each visit. Lead your profession using the advanced technology, designed to help.
