More about Grip Strength

Grip strength is a general term…referring to the muscular power and force that [someone] can generate with their hands.”

A Dyamometer (see picture below) is the tool typically used to measure grip strength. Equipped with high precision strain gauge sensor, the hand dynamometer gives you accurate momentary digital reading of gripping power.
