Clench Force (Bulb) Transducer
Part #: SS56L

The SS56L Clench Force (Bulb) Transducer measures force on the basis of the proportionality of clench force to pressure in the bulb. Because of this proportionality, units are in Kgf/m^2 or psi.

Grasp the pump bulb with your dominant hand—WRAP your hand around the bulb with relaxed fingers. When instructed to clench, do NOT curl fingers into bulb.
