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.
The Ventilator Validation Kit supports new prototype development, existing design validation for production testing, mobile field testing and verification, and other uses where accurate pressure and flow measurements are critical. The Ventilator Validation Kit provides ventilator manufacturers and prototype developers with a complete solution for validating new medical/hospital-grade ventilator products intended for human use. The VVK100-SYS includes […]
MIT and Harvard researchers developed a new technique to expand ventilator capacity Individualized System for Augmenting Ventilator Efficacy (iSAVE): A Rapidly deployable system to expand ventilator capacity “The iSAVE is a rapidly deployable solution in response to the urgent shortage of mechanical ventilators for respiratory support during the COVID-19 pandemic. In contrast to previously described […]
