Dynamometers, Hand Grip, Hydraulic

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 sealed hydraulic system. These dynamometers typically consist of an adjustable handle that can be placed in several grip positions (e.g., in 0.5-inch increments from 1.5 to 3.5 inches) 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 kg (0 to 220 pounds). Hydraulic-type hand grip dynamometers are accurate instruments intended mainly for use in physician's offices, for evaluation of hand trauma, and/or for assessment during physical therapy treatments.
