Which neurological hammer should I purchase?

The answer to this question depends upon the application. For basic reflex assessment, the Taylor hammer is the most popular. The pointed end of the handle can be used to elicit cutaneous reflexes, and the triangular rubber head is used for testing joint reflexes and bone fractures. The Wartenberg Pinwheel tests nerve reactions as it glides across the skin. It is designed for evaluation of cutaneous sensory and pain perception. The Babinski Hammer is designed for testing reflexes and is equipped with a pointed needle in the handle and a rubber head for reflex reaction.
