Wireless Electronic Grip Dynamometer and Console
The Commander Echo Grip Dynamometer is designed for hand strength testing or voluntary maximal effort evaluations. Combined with the JTECH’s Commander Echo Console, you can wirelessly capture hand strength and functional ability in just minutes.
In the past, a hydraulic grip dynamometer would have been used for evaluating grip strength. These analog dynamometers were a great tool at the time but could be unreliable. User’s risked collecting inaccurate grip strength data due to calibration issues or even mistakes recording data by hand.
Nowadays, we have the power of wireless electronic grip strength testers which capture grip strength data faster and more accurately than their predecessors. Modern grip strength testers, like the JTECH Echo Grip Dynamometer, are more portable and much less expensive to operate. Forget about wasting time tracking or calculating, the Commander Echo Console automatically does it for you.

Why Measure a Patient's Grip Strength?
Hand strength has become known as one of the most important aspects of a person’s autonomy. Hand strength and dexterity is increasingly seen as a leading indicator of overall health in general. Tracking a patient’s grip strength norms compared to similar demographics is an easy way to establish health baseline and advance patients in the rehab process.
Uses for Commander Echo Grip Strength Tester
A patient's max grip reading can tell us a lot about their overall health in general. Using the Commander Echo Grip Dynamometer practitioners can identify any improvements / impairments with refined detail. Especially important measuring the effects of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or other chronic hand issues.
