MyoMeter, Hand Dynamometer and Pinchmeter

The MyoMeter, Dynamometer and Pinchmeter that are load cell based devices connects to Biometrics Ltd interfaces – DataLOG, DataLINK, or K800 Amplifier. The output from the devices can readily be combined with EMG, joint goniometry movement data, or other sensor inputs into one simple system.

Each device can also be connected to various 3rd party interfaces and multiple devices may be used simultaneously - for example two dynamometers for simultaneous bilateral dynamic grip strength testing.

New DataLITE wireless MyoMeter, Dynamometer and Pinchmeter are now available.


The MyoMeter allows the user to quantify the force applied during Manual Muscle Testing. Manual Muscle Testing is a procedure for the evaluation of the function and strength of individual muscles and muscle groups based on effective performance of a movement in relation to the forces of gravity and manual resistance.

The M550 MyoMeter is held by the examiner with the curved anvil placed against the body part to be tested. The limb is stabilized and held in the desired starting position. The patient is instructed to hold the limb in position and resist the force applied by the examiner. The examiner applies force gradually until the limb is depressed. The force required to move the limb is referred to as the 'breaking force'.

By connecting the M550 MyoMeter to the DataLOG or the DataLINK and using the management and analysis software, force may be displayed and analyzed in units of Newtons, Kg or lb. The M550 may also be connected to the general purpose amplifier K800 for direct connection to 3rd party instruments such as A/D cards.

The M550 MyoMeter is supplied with two general purpose anvils (1 x small, 1 x large).
