144 – Hand Dynamometer Calibration – BSL

The multi-purpose SS25L hand dynamometer adds a new dimension to force measurements. This fully isometric transducer can be used in the traditional hand grip strength fashion, pulled apart by both hands, or mounted against a wall and pulled.
 
When using this older model hand dynamometer, the proper hand placement is at the uppermost portion of the foam grip, directly below the holes.
 
Use the hand dynamometer to measure clench force. The lightweight, ergonomically designed transducer provides direct readings in kilograms or pounds. Use in isolation or combine with EMG recordings for in-depth studies of muscular activity. The isometric design improves experiment repeatability and accuracy. The SS25LA has a 3 meter cable terminated in a Simple Sensor for direct connection to the Biopac Student Lab System (MP3X). Simple calibration procedure makes this device very easy to use. With the proper equipment and correct scaling techniques described below, precise force measurements can be obtained.
