This application note reports the performance of BIOPAC hand dynamometers SS25LA and TSD121C at grip forces below 1 kg. These devices are specified to register clench force range 0-50 kgf. Performance was measured using the MP150, MP36/MP36R, and MP45.
An alternative for low grip strength measurements is a Response/Hand Force transducer—SS56L, BN-CLENCH, or TSD114-MRI—which is configured with a high sensitivity pressure transducer. Subjects can squeeze a bulb by hand (or apply pressure via foot, thigh, etc.) to indicate a response. The device can provide reduced hysteresis and improved sensitivity at low levels.
Exercise Physiology - Examine ventilation, oxygen uptake, carbon dioxide production, biopotentials, temp., and biomechanical signals simultaneously. Record wirelessly with BioNomadix, BioHarness, or TEAM Systems.
EMG: Electromyography - Record surface, needle, and fine wire EMG—or wireless EMG with BioNomadix. Use real-time integration tools for immediate analysis or use automated EMG analysis routines.
Biomechanics - Use BIOPAC equipment for gait analysis, goniometry, ergonomics evaluation, range of motion, EMG, Remote Monitoring or to interface with third-party equipment.

We had the opportunity to meet lots of researchers at our 4T|Phys Human Physiology Conference this month and demonstrate solutions for life science studies. We presented 39 unique skills sessions, including sessions on measuring blood pressure, recording HRV, and utilizing VR. These studies all apply these skills and further demonstrate how to apply our equipment… Real-Time Personalized Physiologically […]
