 Jamar Plus+ Digital Hand Grip Dynamometer

Ideal for routine screening of grip strength and initial and ongoing evaluation of clients with hand trauma, dysfunction, or post-op recovery. The Jamar Plus hand dynamometer was used to develop the original normative handgrip strength data, combining digital load sensor technology with high-quality hydraulics for accurate and reliable measurements over years of service.

Further, the Jamar Plus Hand Dynamometer measures maximal isometric handgrip strength as an important component of a clinical evaluation as an indicator of overall strength and general health, and as a predictor of accelerated decline and dependency in functional activities of daily living (ADL) in aging.

It's Unique Design

  • Has an easy-to-read LCD display
  • Has a push-button console that includes a button to zero last reading stored
  • Readout displays isometric grip force in pounds and kilograms from 2 - 200 lbs. (90 Kg)
  • Body constructed from aluminum with a scratch resistant UV coating.

The Jamar Plus Digital Hand Dynamometer also Features

  • Digital Load Cell Technology.
  • Rapid Exchange Testing with audible signals and automatically calculates the Average.
  • Standard Deviation and Coefficient of Variation. 
  • With a low battery light indicator and a two-minute automatic shut off feature it helps conserve the battery power. 
  • Uses two AAA batteries. 
  • Comes in a reusable storage container.

 Professions and Settings that use Handgrip Dynamometers

  • Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Hand Therapists: To determine baseline strength measurements in the monitoring of progress overtime in patients receiving rehabilitation treatment for hand and elbow injury and dysfunction.
  • Medical Clinics and Research: A quick and easy to administer protocol to assess muscle function across populations and in performing associated research.
  • Geriatric Populations: Handgrip strength data can provide important information related to muscle wasting progression and frailty in older persons, relevant to the design of therapeutic interventions and use in monitoring of conditions.
  • Workforce: As a screening tool to assess the capability and injury risk for specific job tasks involving frequent and strenuous handgrip work. It has also been used as a tool to determine compensation from work related injuries.
  • Educational: The measurement of handgrip strength can be used to teach key kinesiological principles through demonstration toward strength in body part positioning and proper ergonomics.
