The gold standard in hamstring testing.

Proven by dozens of research studies and built for fast, convenient, field-based testing, the NordBord has set the standard for hamstring strength assessments.


Set up, test, report.
Under one minute.

The NordBord is optimised for speed and ease. Simply select your patient, run a test and see results appear in real-time. Immediately after a test, share summary results with your patient - making for an instantaneous feedback loop.

Test eccentric and isometric strength.

Test hamstring strength isometrically - and in a range of positions - then progress to eccentric tests for stronger patients or athletes.


Backed by 10+ years of research

The NordBord started as an idea born out of research, and has been the subject of dozens of peer-reviewed papers since, proving its efficacy in a range of sports and cohorts.

5 Years of Hamstring Injury Research in 25 Minutes.
