Hand Grip and Pinch Strength for Evaluation
Biometrics' computerised tools for strength evaluation measure in 0.1 increments (Kg or lbs) and include tests that cannot be done with manual devices. In addition to speeding up data collection, they are extremely sensitive providing accurate measurement on very weak or debilitated patients.
Isometric Grip and Pinch for Exercise
As opposed to traditional zero to peak force exercises, the range of force may be graded, setting the minimum and maximum, to meet the patient's functional goals. Force ranges for exercise are set in 0.1 increments with a maximum load of 90 Kg (200 lbs) for grip and 22 Kg (50 lbs) for pinch. The movement of the objects in the E-LINK Activities is controlled by the application and relaxation of isometric grip or pinch within the set parameters. The various activities provide purposeful activity, isometric strengthening, motor learning and control.
The range of force settings and activities allow multiple exercise options such as:
