Baseline® measurement instruments have been used by orthopedists, therapists, FCE administers and professors since the 1980s. Many of you who have received therapy after an injury have probably had your progress tested throughout your rehabilitation with a Baseline® measurement instrument.

The product line includes instruments to measure strength, range-of-motion, sensory perception, body measurements and more. Many Baseline® instruments are manufactured in the USA and carry the CE mark for sale outside the USA.
