Dynamometers, Hand Grip, Spring

Definition : Hand grip dynamometers designed to measure the strength of the hand grip, usually a result of the combined force of the hand and forearm muscles, using a spring that is compressed during the grip test. These dynamometers typically consist of an adjustable handle that is pulled by the hand and a calibrated gauge (e.g., a dial) to show the measured value of the force (usually in pounds, kilograms, or both) and/or pressure (e.g., pounds per square inch [psi]); these instruments usually include a second pointer to retain the values of the maximum force reading until reset. The typical testing range on a dual scale is 0 to 100 kilograms (0 to 220 pounds). Spring-type hand grip dynamometers are accurate, durable, sturdy instruments intended mainly for use in doctor's offices and for assessment during physical therapy treatments.
