What Can I Use This Kit To Test?
This kit contains everything necessary for testing the hand strength and motion capabilities of an individual, making it a convenient and suitable set for healthcare professionals, physical trainers and employers testing the aptitude of job applicants. It contains the following tools which are explained in greater detail below:
Hydraulic Pinch Gauge
Gauge for testing the pinch strength of the thumb and forefinger of an individual with a maximum force of 45 pounds. This particular gauge is unique as it allows the tester to support the weight of the gauge, so the patient, client or applicant is more able to achieve a true pinch pattern, and a more reliable test result.
Lafayette Hydraulic Hand Dynamometer
Hydraulic grip dynamometers are used for testing the grip strength of patient hands. The hand can be placed in five grip positions from 1.375" to 3.375", and can be increased a half inch at a time for precision testing. Results are shown on a dual-scale readout that displays isometric grip force from 0 to 200 pounds (90 kg).
5.75" Finger Goniometer
Finger Goniometers consist of a protractor and two arms which can be used to measure the small joints of the hand, including the metacarpal, phalangeal and interphalangeal joints. With measurements displayed in linear inches and centimetres, and a maximum degree scale of 150°, it allows professionals to clearly assess the range of movement in a patient's hands joints.
