Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation is an increasingly popular treatment method used by clinicians around the world. In its ideal form, IASTM treatment entails the skilled utilisation of precision metal instruments to alleviate adhesions and scar tissue.

The HawkGrips are an instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation tool set. Used physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and occupational therapists. For treatment of scars, fascial restriction and muscular pain. By using the bevelled edges to precisely focus pressure into to breakdown scar tissue and re-align collagen. Unlike manual techniques which are limited in what a clinicians hands can achieve and tolerate. The HawkGrips allows you to scan the tissue for adhesions and contractures, as it heightens the sense of touch, for you to target those areas precisely with a range of tools, each ergonomically designed for varying areas of anatomy and treatment applications. By using the tools, the stresses put through the therapists hands are decreased whilst simultaneously speeding up treatment sessions and improving clinical outcomes.

Why IASTM?

  • Quicker detection of restrictions in soft tissue
  • Quicker and easier to break up tissue densities
  • Helps reduce and heal scar tissue
  • Significant increases in range of motion
  • Treats acute and chronic conditions
  • Decreased pain for patient
  • Easier on therapists hands
