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.
The BioNomadix two channel wireless goniometry amplifier is a dual output device that provide simultaneous measurements around two orthogonal rotational axes (e.g., wrist flexion/extension and radial/ulnar deviations). These units interface with the MP160 (or older MP150) data acquisition and analysis platform and AcqKnowledge software, allowing advanced analysis for multiple applications and supporting acquisition of a broad range of signals and measurements. BN-GONIO can support any […]
Whether using specialized equipment, performing repetitive tasks, or simply going about our daily work routine, the effects of design in our environment as well as the tools we use and the way we use them can impact our health, work performance, and quality of life. Here are a few studies that have recorded and analyzed […]
