Share Article

The National Federation of State High School Association (NFHS) requires every wrestler to be tested for proper hydration levels by measuring Urine Specific Gravity. The newly released Atago PEN-Wrestling refractometer, supplied by National Microscope Exchange, was developed to meet NFHS guidelines and allow coaches a quick way to make sure their athletes are getting enough fluids.

The PEN-Wrestling refractometer can be also be used at the professional and college levels, and is anticipated to quickly become the standard for clinical assessment of Urine Specific Gravity. The reputation of Atago for making world-class refractometers is well known,

The newly released ATAGO PEN-Wrestling digital refractometer supplied by National Microscope Exchange will help keep wrestlers in compliance with weight-management rules. These rules, as approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), require monitoring of hydration of all wrestlers beginning with the 2006-2007 Wrestling season.

The ATAGO PEN-Wrestling will allow coaches to easily determine if their athletes are in compliance with recommended hydration levels. It reads urine specific gravity immediately on a hand held instrument according to National Microscope Exchange President Rowland Brasch.

"The PEN-Wrestling digital refractometer is very easy to use," said Brasch. "Unlike other refractometers where you have to transfer the sample to the instrument using a dropper, the PEN-Wrestling refractometer can be dipped into or touched to the sample. Not only does the digital display take the guesswork out of reading the results, but it also keeps the sample away from your face as you read the scale. Its ease of use and affordability make it a perfect instrument for use in wrestling programs."

National Microscope was noted as the vendor of choice for purchasing the other Atago hydration testing refractometers by the CIF Southern Section in their Wrestling Weight Management Equipment recommendations.

"The PEN-Wrestling refractometer can be also be used at the professional and college levels, and is anticipated to quickly become the standard for clinical assessment of Urine Specific Gravity. The reputation of Atago for making world-class refractometers is well known, "said Brasch.
