Meet the Lachmeter

Lachmeter is the digital evolution of the Rolimeter (Aircast), a device that has already proved to be comparable to KT-1000 / KT-2000 (MEDmetric Corp), according to the scientific references below. It’s a lightweight, portable, accurate and easy-to-use arthrometer.

Very useful for pre and post operative evaluations. Decisive in cases where there is doubt between partial or total lesions of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament. Enteded for Orthopedists and Physioterapists.

To be more precise, you don't need heavy equipments.

Lighter than the others

Made of stainless steel to ensure
lightness and therefore be easy to
carry and handle.

More accurate

Uses high precision digital
measurement so you can be more
accurate with your results.

TARGET

Healthcare professionals, such as
physiotherapists and orthopedists, who
seek more precise results.

Accessories

It comes with a cushion to be placed
behind the thigh, which facilitates
the Lachmeter's use.

DIGITAL

As a digital equipment, the
Lachmeter doesn't need to be
calibrated.

Trustworthy

Made by and for orthopedists. You can get
more accurate results on your pre and
postoperative cases.
