Handgrip Dynamometers

Handgrip dynamometry is emerging as an important tool whose test results are proving to be powerful biomarkers in overall health and predictive markers for general strength, bone density, physical function, fall risk and fractures, nutritional status, length of stay after hospitalization and surgery, and disease status and comorbidity load.

Therapists, researchers, healthcare professionals, and other professionals are incorporating handgrip dynamometry into daily practice, yearly health screenings, and venues that are designed to create relevant awareness in individuals of the importance of physical activity and strength development for a greater quality of life and mobility.
